Odd meeting

A CBNS E/B is met by a crew of city workers/contractors/RR workers (not sure which one) who were mowing the trackside grass! Needless to say they had to move. Note that the huge lash-up with 3 SD45-2's was lead by a GP15-1! One of the big boys, HATX 914 was recently released from the shops after breaking down apparently. Haven't seen him for 9 month!

The consist:
(Note direction is where the units were facing)
E/B LLPX 1508 - (GP15-1) Blue
E/B LLPX 2269 - (GP38-2) Blue
W/B HATX 910 - (SD45-2) Purple
E/B HATX 914 - (SD45-2) Purple
W/B HATX 912 - (SD45-2) Grey
Cool shot, i saw 1509 and 1508 in Qubec last year on a school trip for 3 days, cant remember where i saw them but the track was real rickety, we originally caught them at a really really big church with the tracks beside it, she hasnt changed a bit.
