A Bit of Railfanning on the M & M Sub.

I went down to Ritchie yesterday for a bit of railfanning. I caught a local doing a bit of switching at the elevator, along with a couple of freights.

First in was a general freight from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, led by SOO 6623 and 5480 (ex-SOU/NS 3429). It took the siding.

At first, I wondered why. A short while later, I discovered the reason when a hotshot pig train from Winnipeg to Duluth, led by 5449 (ex-DRGW 5402) and 5447 (ex-CNW 6910), blasted through.

That's my story, at least. Below find a couple of other shots of the scene.

  1. Great "catch"! I really like the third photo of the local working the grain spur. Such great scene!
