CN or NBEC 403?

First off, WOW it's been awhile since I last posted anything here, well it's been a rough month for me personally so I didn't really have the time or energy to post anything.

But I did go out now and then to catch a few trains, and have been reading a few blogs now and then from other Railfans. A couple of weeks ago I was planning on going to McGivney with Matt AKA Stjohnrailfan and Dave AKA nbsrfan(?) but my plans fell through and well I'd like to go sometime before Christmas so we'll see what happens from here.

As I had mentioned above I did manage to catch a few trains, I do have some new videos, however I haven't tagged them, some are still mixed up with my other videos that I had taken while I was in Ottawa and Montreal a couple of weeks ago, while in Montreal I did try and get some railfanning down however a flat tire and a couple janggled nerves later we decided it was best not to goto Beaconsfield. Which is where I wanted to go where Jess and I had gone with our group back in April.

So as we all know now it's offical and is now very much public, CN has bought the NBEC and CFMG and it's lines from QRC. Well I wasn't expecting to see any changes right away till at lease mid march or april. However CN locomotives are now here in Campbellton. However what I think is strange is I hear them calling RTC and are still calling them selfs, "NBEC 402" etc. Though they are now being hauled by CN locomotives.

I have a few pictures and a video that I took of a very short 403 tonight. I'll post them as soon as I upload them to my computer. Till then have fun and keep chasing those trains!
