According to CN's "State of the Railway" site CN trains will be detoured on local short lines between Moncton NB and Joffery Que. Here is the link to the site.

CN does not at this time have a set date for the line to be reopened, some suggest two days.
Tonight I caught CN 121 arriving in Dalhousie Jct and arriving in Campbellton. Justin Babcock was at the Jct with me to take a few pictures. Roughly an hour later CN 305 had arrived. It appeared both 121 and 305 were too long for the Campbellton yard and had to push their way onto the Mont Jolie sub to make it all the way into the yard. I know 121 was about 9,000ft long so yeh I'm pretty sure that streched the limit for the Campbellton yard. The picture above is CN 121 going through McClouds this evening 03 Aug 08.
I'll post my videos tomorrow sometime as it is now 0255hrs and I'm pretty tired. Have fun and keep chasing those trains!

I see you already seen the video of 121. I have a video of 305 at Richardsville, it's a night shot quality isn't all that great. I'm debating on weather to post it or not, but thanks for dropping though.
