Throwback Thursday - Those Colourful Trains of NS

BNSF 4061 North was operating as NS 328 at mile post 1 of the CN Talbot Subdivision on May 19, 2004.  The trailing unit that day was PRR 3385.

The Norfolk Southern trains I used to observe in the London area were numbers 327 and 328, which operated over CN rails between Buffalo and the St Thomas Ford plant.  Trains consisted largely of auto parts box cars, with a few frame flats and covered hoppers thrown in for good measure.  Default power was a pair of black six axle GE units, but these trains often featured locomotives of the "anything goes" variety.  Featuring a mixture of NS, lease, and run-through power, 327 and 328 were always worth checking out.
