St. Thomas, Ontario

(map) St. Thomas is just South of London and is the end of the line for the CP St. Thomas, CN Talbot, and CN Payne subs. It is also serviced by Trillium Railway, sees NS trains 327/328 and once had the CASO sub passing through it with US through-traffic.

Jay, Chris, Steve, and myself met up with Walter in Ingersoll. For the first time, I attempted to take pictures of the same trains with two cameras at the same time, one angled for approach, the other for going-away shots. The photos were then renumbered against the time-stamps to try to put them in order, until I discovered that the two cameras' clocks were out of synch. I figured the two cameras were 26 seconds apart, and that is what this sequence is based on.
