Action at Oxford Jct NS, May 9th 2022
Author: newtonville150

May 9th 2022 @ 11:19, CN Q120 at Oxford Jct (CN 2894, CN 3864, 196 axles.) Two shots.
This train had mechanical problems and I first encountered it in the siding at Springhill Junction about an hour earlier.
It eventually was left at Folly Lake for a re-crew.

May 9th 2022 @ 11:41, CN Z120 by Oxford Jct, (CN 3124, CN 3918 + DPU CN 3936, 506 axles) Three shots, including the DPU.
Z120 was very close behind Q120, but I didn't hear it pass the defect detector 4 miles east of here until I was pulling into my driveway in Springhill.
I guess they didn't want to catch the ailing train in front of it.

Then it was back down to the tracks after lunch...

May 9th 2022 @ 14:56, CN L5071109's lead unit ES44DC CN 2244 stops
just short of the shadows by the Onion House at Oxford Jct NS.

Having taken the siding to meet VIA 14. At 15:29 the short 132 axle train
regains the mainline an continues its journey to Moncton NB
and is on the switch with the CN 2244 leading SD75I CN 5700.

Finally we see CN 5700 just west of the Colburne Road grade crossing.

Don't ask about my botched attempt at a pan shot of the VIA train!
