So last nights chase was rather interesting, 121 wasn't as long as I had thought, and the extra was fairly long with all empties! I have two videos that I will upload to Youtube later on this evening if I am not too swamped in work. If not than this week diffently!
Well I'm on a bit of a time constraint, so until the next time, have fun and keep chasing those trains!

Also on July 30th I had caught CN 564 on it's way back from Bathurst with 33 cars in tow, I have a video of that and I'll post it to Youtube ASAP. Other than that it's been pretty good, I was quite surprised at the amount of trains I had caught along the way, however on the return trip I didn't see any. I heard a local on my scanner in Mont Joli other than that it was really quite coming home. Well I'll post the pictures when they are avaliable till then have fun and keep chasing those trains!

CN 906 will be leaving this morning and will continue to dump ballast starting at M.P. 07.XX, the horn on that bad boy was pretty loud. Diffently a sound that demands your attention! Or one that says, "Get out of my way!" Well that's about all for now, I know it's been a long while since I last wrote, hope this tides you over till the next time. Here are a few pictures from last night's catch of CN 906.
Well that's it for me this week as far as trains go, have fun and keep chasing those trains!

Last Canada Day this song played on CBC radio and the host had commented on how the song starts of slow as though a train is at the station then the song slowly starts to speed up then it get's faster and faster as though a train gains speed. Then slows down again as though the train is pulling into a station. Then it speeds up and slows down as would a train. It was a really interesting anoloigy the commentor had made.
For those interested here's a video I had found on Youtube. that shows exactly what I mean. Watch and enjoy!
Keep chasing those trains and have fun!

So turned around and headed back to the crossing, and moments later 564 came around the bend, with a good mix of freight. It's not easy to spot in the video I had posted on Youtube, but in my pictures you can see the engineer waving to me as he passed by.
Here's the orgional picture. I had to crop it. The corpped picture is further up in this post.Also on Saturday afternoon Jess and I seen the "look out" has finally been opened for the summer, which happens to overlook the Yard. I took a few pictures and noticed there are still some NBEC RS-18's sitting in the yard. I assume these ones are dead and are of no use. Were more than likely used for parts.
When I zoomed in on the number boards, the only one I know for sure of is 1858, I stand to corrected but I think there is also 1850 and possibly 1855. The others I couldn't make out at all.
On Sunday we went to Bathurst, but I'll save that post for later. Have fun and keep chasing those trains!
