    Rail link engine in CN consist at mac yard?

    Hey guys I was working at mac yard in toronto doing training and spotted a rail link engine coming in the inbound track. It was the trailing unit in the consist. I believe the unit was a RLK 4504? (or 4404?) It looked like a geep but had a sloped short nose. Sorry could not tell you where it...

    A westbound GO Train is about to pass beneath me with the CN Tower in background.
  3. GO York University station

    GO York University station

    Not much for infrastructure fenced off walkway between two warehouses, not wide enough for two forklifts to pass each other. Aside from the cool sign, phone booth and schedule listing, I believe theres also a ticket vending machine closer to the tracks, as well as a bus booth and wheelchair...

  5. Toronto bound

    Toronto bound

    8:24am GO 808 Southbound commuter from Barrie enters Toronto by crossing Stelles Ave. Despite the short lenght, the rear of the train is over the CN mainline - on another bridge. The final, 4th morning train is running 3 minutes late. I'm still debating with myself if I should have taken it...
  6. CN 4700

    CN 4700

    CNs first GP38-2 is in good company: trailing a GP40-2LW (currently oldest on CNs roster) followed by a GP9RM predecessor. As you can see with each generation the cab gets bigger LOL. Sadly the GP40-2LWs were the last new Geeps on CNs roster. From MP 25.00 York sub June 29th, 2008 6:01pm...

    GO snake

    Most common piece of RR equipement in Toronto. Note the MOW machine in the top right corner. Photo taken from the CN tower. I tried the same with an inbound ONR train, but missed the power.
  9. GO 545

    GO 545

    During my short (10 min.) railfanning time at Toronto's Union station I managed to catch three GO commuter trains like this one, and got sight of the ONR Northlander before he hid inside the station. Needless to say I quickly became bored with them, you only need to see two trains before the...

    THB is alive...

    THB is well and alive... in Saskatoon? That's right, seen a couple of these THB hoppers already. Taking into account that the THB was taken over by CP in the late 80s its pretty remarkable its still around and not patched over by CP. Oddly enought I visited THB's home this summer: Toronto...
  11. Yep...CN 115 had 4 engines last night..

    Yep...CN 115 had 4 engines last night..

    Evidence as the 2 GEVOs heading up its eastbound counterpart. When 115 has 4 units, 2 return on 114, and the other 2 stay in Calgary. Alas, I missed 115 today. Anyway, this site alone is one to behold. CN ES44DCs 2220 and 2234 head up a late 114 on its trip to Toronto. Did I mention that I...

    Off to Winnepeg, and eventually, Toronto, I suppose

    Here, we see one of the Watrous subdivisions many Wood trains. These trains usually are 75% centerbeam lodas, with a mix of pulpwood boxes, and even a few covered gondolas that haul copper. This was probably the best shot I got all night. I saw 114 and a manifest with Wisconcin Central 2006...

    VIA 6408 awaits a signal behind another VIA train (seen in distance under bridge). The VIA in the distance is awaiting a GO to clear a block ahead of it. The 2 VIA's are heading over to TMC Mimico for servicing after their runs. 6408 came from Montreal overnight as the Enterprise as GO 533...

    Snowy tracks near Union Stn.

    I took this from the cab car of an eastbound GO train (CN Opd) as we headed into Union Station. In the distance you can see a VIA Train F40 who a few minutes blew by us, scaring the daylights out of me.
