I was out and about on October 13th and decided to setup at the Harwood Avenue overpass to catch one of the morning westbound VIA trains as they headed for Toronto. This day was interesting, weather-wise, with spots of rain, snow, sun and cloud. I was hoping for a bit of sun while shooting and got just that – a bit. I heard little action related to the coming VIA, more for CN, but sure enough it came along. It hit the detector in east Whitby, already at 89 MPH having just left Oshawa station. Here it is splitting the signals at mile 304 on the Kingston sub.
It was flying at this point, but I managed to get a fairly clear one just as it came close to the bridge.
VIA 920, which I hadn’t seen outside of being part of this consist last year. That was it for this part of the day. I heard a bit more action on the scanner, but that’s for another day.
