Greg warned of CN #399 with a war bonnet leading, so we went west for him, getting distracted by CP trains along the way. We caught CP #241 at Killean and again at Woodstock where it and #159 met #240, stopping at Zorra for CP #158 and finally heading down to Ingersoll for CN #385, CN #399, and VIA #73.
(map) This is CP's name for the passing track at Cambridge on the CP Galt sub.
CP #241 crosses 10 Sideroad S.
(map) The CP Galt and CN Dundas subs meet here, as do highways 401 and 403. It is a busy place.
CP #240 pulls into Coakley siding.
CP #241 beats us back to the crossing ater meeting #240 and takes off westward.
CP #159 heads west over the bridge at the east end of Woodstock yard.
(map) Just outside of Ingersoll is Zorra Station. It contains a large Lafarge plant and the CP Galt sub.
CP #158 passes the Lafarge facilities in Zorra.
(map) The CN Dundas, the CP St. Thomas, and the OSR Port Burwell subs are very active through Ingersoll, with the CP Galt sub just to the North in Zorra.
CN #399 does a very good imitation of the late NS #327 with a pair of BNSF units and a cut of autoparts cars for Talbotville Ford.
CN #385 passes slowly after leaving from its lift at Beachville.
VIA #73 passes with the next day's VIA #82 in tow.
