Recently at the Walkley Yard, I noticed that they orphaned a couple of sections of track recently as well as re-ballasted a section...
It has been over a year since I’ve seen the local freight service to Arnprior. I went out a couple of times over the year trying to catch a glimpse, but was unsuccessful on each and every single attempt.
At lunch I heard the whistle coming from the North, which was unusual since I usually only hear train whistles from the South (Via outside of Barrhaven). I decided to make a small detour to investigate it.
I was able to see train at March Road and Carling Avenue at 12:45 on Wednesday afternoon with its consist of four cars heading west.
Attempting to take pictures of it was challenging since I had to use my mobile phone instead of my dSLR (you’ve got to use the tools you have with you). I will say that mobile phone cameras can be quite decent (even when I cropped it like crazy on the image above). It did help that I took the picture in RAW on the phone which made post processing easier due to exposure miscalculations by the phone.
