14:40 to 16:06

CN 392 stopped to set-off 63 cars and lift 36
Power was
CN 5756 - CN 2650 - CN 5744
101 cars - 63 + 36 = 74 cars departing Brantford
Due to the length of the stub end tracks the set-off filled 3 full tracks with a handfull going to a 4th track.
Talk about fun in the blowing snow. When I was up an hour earlier the skys were mainly sunny with a few clouds and no snow coming down.

If your serious about coming up, e-mail me and I can show you around. About 20 min east of here is Bayview Jct which gets the trains that go through Brantford plus the stuff that heads towards Buffalo including GO Trains, CP moves on trackage rights and CN and VIA trains.
