CP Symbol #522? on the Freight Main

Post by BEDT 14 »


Can anyone verify for me the running of a CP train #522 on Freight Main between (at least) CPF 528 (Worcester, NY) and CPF 547 (Cooperstown Junction, NY) on 1/9/2013.

Never heard this symbol before on this route.. It held at CPF 528 at 15:15 EST (approximately) for 253 to clear, then proceeded south/west. I caught it with CP #8714 on point. Mixed consist.. Radio transmissions were low volume and honestly, couldn't tell if it was 522... 922.. IIRC, it was not 252, but I could be mistaken. Pics here:

522 is not listed on any of the railfan generated symbol lists.

I will cross list in the NY Railfan thread as well.

Thanks to any and all for assistance in advance; and a Happy & Healthy New Year!
