GO train #913 heads west past the construction site
This past Sunday, I spent an hour watching the work. Much of the land has been cleared and levelled already and a crew were busy removing the last of the trees from the site. Train-wise, it was also a busy morning as the usual complement of GO and VIA trains was bolstered by an eastbound freight and a ballast train.
CN 5949 at Whitby
The ballast train was lead by CN 5949, a former Kansas City Southern SD40-3 that CN had kept in storage until earlier this year. These distinctive grey units are frequently used on work trains.
I look forward to keeping an eye on construction at the site and will label all future updates as "ERRMF_Whitby".
