There was a fair bit of action at Smiths Falls on Friday 28 May. CP #2816 arrived around 4pm but I missed her entry by about 45 minutes. However, I did arrive in time to see lots of action. CP #2816 had to back down the south main line to reach a fire hydrant to fill the tenders with water. As such, she was blocking one of the two main lines and, more importantly, one of the crossovers from the CN Smiths Falls sub. But she was clear of the crossover that would take CP freights from the north main line to the south main line - but with not a lot of clearance. It was slow orders all the way through. First was the Toronto-bound VIA which has just come off the CN Smiths Falls sub from Ottawa. It will continue on the north main until just after the CP Smiths Falls station before it turns onto CP's Brockville sub. Quite a contrast between the old and the new.
