SOO 6033
Title:  SOO 6033
Description:  After waiting out several delays along its journey, CP train 655 charges through Frontenac behind SOO 6033, SOO 6054 and CP 8514. Delays included a leaking tank car on an opposing train, a traffic accident that necessitated closing the mainline for a rescue helicopter, and a stop at River Junction to add the third unit. Then again, all the delays allowed for some very nice light to come around at this location.
