Throwback Thursday - Exotic Equipment Close to Home

CP 1401 East is approaching Embro Road near the east siding switch of Zorra on June 05, 2004.
By Peter Mumby.

In the late spring of 2004, CP Hudson 2816, in the company of diesels 1401, 1900, and 3084, was touring in Ontario and Quebec.  I was able to photograph the equipment in Smiths Falls on May 28 and 29.  You can check the posts of November 18 and 25 of 2021.  At Smiths Falls the train was split in two, with 2816 taking charge of one portion and the diesels powering the other half.  CP 1401 West came through London on its way to Windsor on June 04 and I was able to catch it both east and west of the London yard.  The next day it returned eastward, and I photographed it at the western edge of the city.  Knowing that the crew would be changed at London, I headed east to catch the train on the Galt Sub.  Although there were no meets between London and Woodstock, for some reason the train was routed through each of the two passing sidings at slow speed, so I was able to keep ahead of it and enjoy multiple run pasts.  Today's photo shows the train approaching the east siding switch of Zorra.
