Man o' War, you didn't mention that the engine leading northbound train 382 was ex Citi Rail ES44AC #2790!!!! It has P.T.C. :shock: Think These are fairly cool! Now, of course the engines they replaced ('Cowls''/Dash 8s) were much cooler! :roll: Second was CN ES44AC #2925! I caught 382 just in time at "CP Beck" Utica Road in Fraser about 12:30 p.m.! As I was bike riding south toward the tracks, the signals went down! I "Whipped" out one of my Canon® 35mm S.L.R. s. Got a couple pix just in time! I was on the shadow side though! Think it had 165 cars! I then called fellow friend Roger (has a lent 35mm Canon® T-70) and he captured this train in Richmond!!!! :mrgreen: YESS!!!! :mrgreen:

I did not even see (or hear) the "Light Engine" of 'CN' painted GTW 5844 on train 515! I may get this engine next week if it stays! :wink:

E271 tends to go to BC although twice this month it’s been diverted to flat rock down the Clemens.

X273 has been a recently used symbol to denote Toronto-Flat Rock rack trains.

X275s have run to flint or flint/Lansing and terminated there usually.

E271 is an extra train right? Or is it daily?
