I went out at lunch to shoot the Canadian at Waverley Street. It turns out there was a bit of a traffic jam on the CN Rivers subdivision. When I arrived at Waverley, an eastbound intermodal was rolling by with 8819? on the tail end. When it passed, I saw another eastbound stopped on the north track east of the crossover switch. There was a CN MOW crew doing work on the crossover switch on the north track. I waited for a bit, and the Canadian showed up at 12:30.
The Canadian's consist was:
VIA 8411 Imperial
VIA 8319 Dawson Manor
VIA 8301 Abbot Manor
VIA 8321 Draper Manor
VIA 8209 Chateau Iberville
VIA 8707 Kokanee Park
Once they passed, the eastbound freight left, and there was nothing in sight.
For those keeping score, this is the 22nd Canadian I have seen since moving to Winnipeg six months ago. Time flies when you're having fun!
