CN 8810 and 2663 shepherd the key train at 30 mph
More photos. Less Text. Wednesday, while heading west for a pizza pick-up, Toronto-Montreal CN No 376 could be seen in the distance, descending into Collins Bay. Here is a pop-up post of the train. I desperately try to find some interesting freight cars and had some moderate success on this chemical-laden DPU-equipped monster. Previous pop-up posts of 376 were published in February 2021, October 2016, May 2016, and January 2016.

Michael da Costa confirmed that PLWX 44503 was on its way to American Iron and Metal in Montreal for scrapping. With that it was a rendez-vous with roundness, a parade of pepperoni, a dinner of diameter!
At this week's Associated Railroaders of Kingston Zoom meeting, we had the pleasure of a presentation by noted Canadian railway author and photographer Bill Linley. Add preservationist to Bill's list of accomplishments, as he was humbly instrumental in the moving and stabilization of 4-6-0 CNR 1274/1521 to Nova Scotia's Middleton Railway Museum.
The renumbering to 1521 took place to make room in CN's numbering system for SW1200RS's built in 1957. My brother had scanned an interesting slide taken by our Dad back in the summer of 1960. 'Take Your Three Year-Old to the Scrapline Day!' - hey, why not? On the pilot of 1521 in the Turcot Yard scrapline, who could have predicted the twists and turns in the future of this locomotive?
Thursday is Remembrance Day. I've been researching a series that I've entitled 'More Than Poppies', linking each day in November with a Canadian military achievement that happened on that date. Trying to break free of the usual remembrance themes, it's clear the Canada's military experiences spanned four centuries and the entire world. Attend an in-person or streamed service, learn more, and wear a poppy!
