Railroadforums.com is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.

If I drive 20 minutes on my bike outside of town, this is the closest CN spot I can reach. I don't like it very much as its far from home, trains go fast doing 60miles/hour and it doesn't help that it's a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. That's why I chose to railfan CP instead on a regular basis, nothing against CN.
With that said I don't think I'll ever forget this train, not that there was anything too special about it. At 8:00pm I left for home, 8:01pm I hear it on my scanner and make a frantic u-turn, 8:03pm he shows up at the crossing, 8:07pm the last car flies by. Before that I waited two hours for a train without seing one. Just not my kind of railfanning.

Interstingly, a fellow railfan zartok, managed to catch the same train 5 miles down the line!
