A CP westbound comes under the Bank St. bridge in Winchester. We caught it with seconds to spare on an ATV trail not far off a road where we were passing when the train called Winchester mile.

Winchester, Ontario

The namesake of the CP Winchester subdivision, Winchester is on County Road 31 (Bank St) south of Ottawa.

August 13th, 2011

After an extended trainless period and with the death of my as-yet unreplaced Tamron 18-200MM superzoom lens, I finally got out to the tracks southbound out of Ottawa via Bank St to the St. Lawrence, picking up a westbound stack train at Winchester on CP, CN #377 at Iroquois, and an assortment of Vias in the Brockville area. Years after the first one went into service (and was subsequently wrecked), I finally shot one of the rebuilt VIA F40PHs.
