Derailment! CP London Pickup picked the north wye switch at Galt yard and put both units on the ground at around 20:30. We went down to see what we could see, catching CP #244 at Killean siding on the way in. Earlier in the day, CN #271 had a UP leader with an unpatched SP SD40 elephant style, but I was unable to see it, and in the afternoon, I tied CP #158 to the nearest crossing to my house on the Galt sub with 2 GEVOs in atrocious lighting and rain.

Killean, Ontario

(map) This is CP's name for the passing track at Cambridge on the CP Galt sub.

CP #158 brings with it the sweet sound of a GEVO horn.

Cambridge, Ontario

(map) Cambridge is the home of Babcock and Wilcox, Toyota, the CP Waterloo sub, the CP Galt sub, the CN ex-Fergus sub and a lot of trains.

CP 8222 and CP 1614 back up along the Waterloo sub as the Galt yard crew and London Pickup's crew work on solving London Pickup's derailment.
