Export Train in Moncton

On Tuesday, I made the trip up to Moncton to check out the Export train which was making a stop in Moncton before venturing to Halifax. While I was in Moncton, here are a few videos which I managed to get:

CN 534 entering the spur at Painsec Junction:

VIA 614 passing Painsec Junction on the way to Halifax:

CN 405 Entering Yard At Gort In Moncton:

Finally, CN 436, the Export Train, passing Marsh Junction on the way to Halifax:

That's pretty much the part day summed up. I don't really want to get into much detail, since nothing really exciting happened.

A "Kind Of New" Video.

Just thought that I'd post a video of CN 120 which I caught up in McGivney on October 6, 2008. Here's the story behind it:

My girlfriend had to go to Fredericton for a couple of hours, so since I had some time to kill, I decided to make the 30 minute trip up to McGivney to see if I could catch anything.

I arrived at 7:30pm. The east facing signals showed red over red, so I decided to take a walk down the line to the west facing signals; green over red! I knew that something was going to be along the way shortly.

After waiting, and waiting, and waiting, until around 9pm, I was just about to leave when I heard the pounding of the engines about 15 miles up the track(at least). It got louder and louder until I finally heard the whistle for Parker Ridge, I knew that the train would be here in a matter of moments. My only question was, which train was it? My thoughts were either 120, or perhaps 474, or even a late 308.

Finally, at around 9:05pm, CN 120 flies by with 115 cars.

I'll try to get back up to date later on.

Been A While

It's been a while since I've last made a post around here. I've done a few railfanning adventures. I'll post my stories here later on.
