This was another routine trip to the Junction.


Guelph Junction, Ontario

(map) Technically Campbellville, Guelph Junction is the junction of the Guelph Junction Railway -- currently serviced by OSR -- the CP Hamilton sub, and the CP Galt sub. It is between Milton and Galt on the CP Galt sub.

A short local train with 5 coil cars and second-hand unit CP 4652 comes out of Hamilton sub toward London. It parked there and was still there waiting to get on Galt sub when I left two hours later.

I have never felt as miserable as I do about this video. UP cotton belt engine number 1972 was the second unit on this train, along with CP 9554, SOO 6031, and CP 9532, and I blew the video of it so you can't see it. This video is super-short and shows the engine, but the Cotton Belt markings are not visible. In case you've never seen one, they're black with a Union Pacific shield and large white letters stating "Cotton Belt".
