Hello Everyone--- a great spot to watch trains in Hamilton Ontario is the Canadian Pacific Kinnear yard at the corner of Lawrence Rd. and Gage Ave---there's even a snack-bar (and washroom) right on location--as always,be aware of trespassing notices.Here's some shots of todays action.

Hi Gus---thanks for responding.The 'orange monstrosity" and the accompaning caboose is a Schnabel car owned by Hydro One---it's used to transport electrical transformers---it was a rare find as I haven't seen one of these cars before---I wish I could have gotten some better pictures.Lately there has been a number of leased locomotives on the Canadian Pacific making for some interesting lash-ups.As well,the Canadian National has been running the 2100's---ex Union Pacific locomotives and once in a while a leased unit will show up

How do you get so close? Do you have permission to enter the property and snap photos?
Hello Tetters---There are trespassing signs at Kinnear yard and I have always obeyed them---I never venture beyond the fence that parallels the tracks.Fortunately,Lawrence Road also runs quite a distance in an easterly direction parallel to the tracks so there are a lot of good spots to take photos---just be aware of the traffic.If you ever go to Kinnear yard in Hamilton,you can park your car near the snack bar (Gage Ave.S. at Lawrence Road) and walk along on the south side of Lawrence Rd. which is a designated bike path---lots of photo opportunities.Here's a couple more shots at Kinnear yard.

Hello Everyone---it was a perfect day to watch trains---except there were no trains.Here's my vantage point waiting for a train to come along.I waited for an hour or so hoping for some action without any luck.

Hi Ed,
That turnout looks to be as high speed as any I have ever seen, just guessing it is 130 ft from the point to the frog. Do you know the speed limit through that crossover?
