A Couple Of Trains On A Rainy Sunday

It's been awhile since I last made a post. I'll try to update this week about my adventures which happened over the last month or so. For today, I'll post about, well, what happened today.

As one of my rare "full" days off from work, I decided to venture out to catch CN 406 on it's last leg of the trip to Saint John. At around 2pm, I went to Tennis Court Road and waited. At around 2:35pm, CN 406 west came through with 56 cars, with 2527 & 2277 for power.

After that, I went home for a bit, knowing that I had some time before they left Saint John. At around 5pm, I heard them receive their clearance to depart Saint John, and I darted back out to Rothesay, this time, at a different location. At roughly 5:30pm, CN 406 east came by with 2277 and 2527 for power, hauling 40 cars.

That was all for today. Not bad for a day off.
