Laura and I woke up at dawn in Colbourg and worked our way home, stopping at Newtonville and CP's Toronto (Agincourt) yard on the way.
(map) Cobourg is about the mid-point of the CN Kingston sub and CP Belleville sub's roughly parallel running between Belleville, and Newtonville. At the station, the North side of the parking lot has the Kingston sub and a small yard and wye, and on the South side of the parking lot is the CP Belleville sub, with a yard visible a little ways East.
An early-morning intermodal passes Cobourg station moments after we get there.
CN #303 heads West through Cobourg station.
CN #309 runs through the station.
CN #121 passes, starting a never-ending trend of intermodal trains.
A CP intermodal train heads East through the Via station, with a few manifest cars at the end.
CN #306 passes eastbound with a CSX SD50 in second spot.
VIA #56 and VIA #42 J-train pulls into the Via station.
CP #159 heads by behind Cobourg Via station.
(map) This community is about an hour East of Toronto. Through the area the CP Belleville sub from Toronto to Montreal, and the CN Kingston sub on the same routes run parallel.
CP #120 Expressway heads under the Stacey Road bridge.
A Via train rushes eastbound looking, in the words of Laura, like a slug.
Another CN intermodal heads West under Stacey Road.
Another of the large selection of Via trains on the Kingston sub passes under Stacey Road.
(map) The capital of Ontario, this city has a number of very busy lines and yards on both the CP and CN networks.
