Back To Blogger

Well, after some consideration, I'm going to bring my blog back to Blogger. Not really sure why. I guess I'm just bad at keeping things consistent. I still might not post very often, but I'll be posting back here.

Stay tuned.

Moving My Blog, For Good.

I'm moving my blog over to Tumblr. It's been a good run here, but I think with a change of scenery, and easier tools to promote my posts along various social outlets, I'm better off moving. 

You can follow my blog over on Tumblr: 

See Ya later Blogger. It was a good run.!

Small Update, 2 Months Later

Wow, safe to say I'm not very good with the updates here. 
Well, here's a picture to help get me by until my next update, whenever that will be. 

CN 5727 west through Hampton, N.B. July 27, 2013

Enjoy. Not sure when I'll post another update, as I've almost kind of forgotten about the blog.

HLCX 6319 Eastbound

Here's my latest shot from yesterday, Friday. HLCX 6319 is leading a 6-unit eastbound NBSR freight through Welsford, New Brunswick.

Weekend Westbound

With the weather being nice on Saturday, I decided to take a break from work to catch the daily westbound. I arrived with the train about a mile and half away, so I didn't have much time to set up.

The shot seemed to turn out decent, nonetheless. Here's CN 8832 leading the daily westbound, along with two GE's.

Happy Monday! More updates to come.

Oops, Quick Update

Sorry, it's been a few months since I've last written a post on here. I'm seriously going to try and keep the blog updated again. Here's a picture, of a DPU, to pass the time until my next update.

CN 5737, Inside The Curve

Here's my latest video, taken on February 13th. Decided to venture out to catch the daily westbound freight, along my favorite new area, "the curve". This time, however, I decided to venture on the inside of the curve for my main shot. CN 5737 provides the power for this westbound. This SD75i has been retrofitted with a K5LLA horn, one of my favorites.

The shot turned out relatively well. Unfortunately most of the westbounds which run on the line run in the mid/late afternoon time frame, so the lighting isn't the best. An early morning westbound here would be ideal.

Snowy CN Westbound

On Sunday, I decided to venture out to catch the daily CN westbound "406" freight. With some light snow falling, I decided to stick around the usual location. At around 16:20AST, CN 2671 leads a three unit lash up through Rothesay, NB.

More Foreign Power

Holy crap, sorry it's been so long since my last update. As usual, the blog seems to take a backseat to the rest of the stuff I've been working on.

Any who, I figured I'd share one of my latest catches. This past Sunday, myself and Dave, aka "NBSRFAN", caught an eastbound loaded oil train with HLCX 8144 at the point, with a BNSF and two CSX units trailing, starting their descent into Grand Bay, NB.

It's nice to see all this foreign power coming across the border in to New Brunswick.

Happy Superbowl Weekend, and I'll try to update more often (but don't hold me to it).
