Throwback Thursday - Operation Lifesaver

NS 9251 is showing off its Operation Lifesaver paint scheme in the CN St Thomas North yard on March 31, 2002.

By Peter Mumby. 

Until Norfolk Southern withdrew from Southern Ontario at the end of 2006, the CN St Thomas North yard was a great spot to take detailed photos of NS power.  The locomotives would arrive with train 327 around mid-morning, then lay over until 328 departed the next day.  The Operation Lifesaver scheme on 9251 presented an interesting variation on the typical NS black garb.  I don't know how many units were decorated in this way, but I have photos taken on these 327/328 trains of locomotives 9250, 51, 52, 54, and 55.
