Laura and I went up to Parry Sound to see what we could find in the land of Canadian domestic trains where CP and CN are close to eachother. I was a little disappointed by the three locations I found where CN and CP were so close together that travelling between them was not necessary, but found a number of locations where one or the other track looked nice. The sun skunked us on virtually every train, becoming obscured just long enough for the engines to pass, but giving me wonderful lighting for countless intermodal containers... Among the interesting stuff we saw was both NS and CSX foreign power, a string of CP boarding cars, and an apparently brand new GO transit bi-level coach.
Parry Sound, Ontario
(map) Parry Sound is about 220 km North of Toronto on highway 400, which is itself still under construction. CP and CN's tracks are very close on both sides of town and in a few places nearby and a thousand-foot bridge through town on the CP adds to the general railfan appeal of the location.
CN #202 with CN 5384 and NS 9524 passes the signal at South Parry shortly after dawn.
CN #104 with CN 2619 leading heads through South Parry southbound with a very long intermodal train.
CP #103 with 4 AC4400CWs goes over the main bridge through Parry Sound.
VIA #1, The Canadian, crosses a field a mile South of the signals at South Parry.
VIA #1, The Canadian, leaves the Parry Sound Via station.
CP #231 Hamilton-Sudbury steel train passes just North of Parry Sound.
CN #201 crosses the Rousseau Road crossing a few miles South of Parry Sound, catching us by surprise as we'd just arrived.
CN #105 crosses a field near South Parry.
CN #103 crosses a field just South of South Parry.
CN #107 passes across a field near South Parry with a CSX C44-9W trailing.
CP #434 with 10 MoW cars of various descriptions slows as it crosses a crossing to check a smoking wheel on the far side of the train.
CN #300 crosses a road in town with a 10,000 foot train.
CN #300 finishes passing with a brand new GO transit bi-level coach on delivery.
