I wasn't planning to railfan today, so I only spent 10 hours trackside... today's haul: Via #70, CN #390 (with CEFX-CSX for power), and NS #327 (2 BNSF executive units) at Copetown, NS #327 again and CN #148 at Ingersoll, CP #159, CP #424, CP London Pickup, and CN #399 at London, and CN #393, CN #422, CN #398 (with a TTX caboose!), CN #421, CN #396, CN #435, and CN #275 at mile 30.

Copetown, Ontario

(map) Copetown is the top of Dundas hill. Trains line up at the top as people would at a waterslide, and other trains slowly grind their way up the hill. It's just to the East of Brantford.
