Been a really long time since I had watched switching. Surprised by flashing signals, pulled into a parking lot, to watch NS9245 pull into the in line of the paper mill wye, hook onto a CN single door box, and drag it east; down the depot passing siding, then back on the main to park the box on the east end of a CP double door high cube. Leaving the pair on the main, NS9245 regained the passing siding, and returned stern end to connect to the boxes, and push them to the mixed freight parked east of Houghton Street. Bringing the air back up was more then my bladder could wait for, so I didn't get to see their train.
That crew was smooth, that engine nary a rumble, and the crew waved (friendly, but ya, I know why). Beautiful Job. Enjoyed the show.
