Nice Day For A Few Trains

Last Thursday, I was finished work early, so I decided to venture out to catch a few trains. I had actually caught the overnight potash train (CN 594), while on the way in to work.

After work, I decided to meet up with Dave, aka "NBSRFAN" ( to catch the daily freight train, CN 406. We met up at around 1:30PM, just outside of Saint John. We sat and talked, and waited. A few hours later, at around 3:45PM AST, CN 406 is westbound outside of Saint John, NB, hauling a smaller train. There's been better power on the train as of late.

As of today, Monday June 13, CN 8865 & CN 8871 are still the power on the train.
