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.
The namesake of the CP Winchester subdivision, Winchester is on County Road 31 (Bank St) south of Ottawa.
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.
Ingleside, Ontario, is near Morrisburg on the CN Kingston sub.
CN #377 comes up on us with minimal warning.
Cardinal, Ontario is just east of the 416/401 interchange. The CASCO plant is serviced daily by a private operator connecting to CN.
A Via with two F40s passes eastbound.
Yonge Mills, Ontario
