What Canadian Railroading is all about, outside photographing trains at -17deg C, plus a wind chill equal to -26C. Standing by the yard at St Thomas, Ontario, a pair of Ontario Southland Railway (OSR) locos, FP9u No. 6508 built in 11/54 and GP7 No. 383 of 5/52 vintage are seen about to return to Ingersoll with a local freight on 11 February 2016 after servicing local industry. Following heavy snow earlier in the morning, the sun broke to allow this image. In 2016 it's amazing that photographers can still capture such heritage classic North American traction in action. Three fully operational FP9s are currently on the OSR roster. With thanks to OSR for a little 'assistance'.
