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.
