Overnight Potash Train

On Tuesday night, I decided to venture in to Saint John to catch the nightly potash train. I figured they'd be a little earlier than normal, since CN 406 was early that day. Sure enough, at around 22:00AST, I caught CN 594 crossing over Rothesay Ave in Saint John, NB, en route to Courtnay Bay to set off the full cars, and pick up empties for the return trip.

I don't catch this train very much, as it's mostly an overnight train, and it's times can vary.

Some Updates - Train Show and Eastbound

It's been a while since I last did an update. It seems like that's the routine lately. Hopefully when things quieten down in the New Year, I can update the blog on a regular basis.

I won't go in to too much detail with this post. I've shot a few trains since my last post. On Saturday, November 5th, I was at the Saint John Model Train Show. It looked like a great turnout, with some great layouts as well. I only shot one video, of an N-Scale model.

A few days later, a friend of mine, Mike R, was driving the daily eastbound freight through Rothesay, NB.

Hopefully more updates to follow.
