  1. DSP5589


    This is a shot of engine 2259 heading Southbound over what used to be a road. The crossing signs are still in place, but the road was removed. It used to be kind of neat to park your car so close to the tracks and head over to the diamond for a few hours of train watching.
  2. CBNS 305

    CBNS 305

    I often saw CBNS 306 when I lived in Nova Scotia. 305 on the other hand ran later in the day, ussually when I ate dinner, so I didn't see him as much. This is one of the few days when I got lucky though. Note the loaded coal cars. The units were smoking hard, I had to move out of the way to...

    CBNS's finest power

    From the right: LLPX 2259&2269 (GP38-2's) followed by HATX 912, 907 & 914 (SD45-2's).
  4. Tribute to CBNS

    Tribute to CBNS

    Don't think I can make a more scenic photo of CBNS.
  5. LLPX 2259 (GP38-2)

    LLPX 2259 (GP38-2)

    Once this was an IC GP40, but then CN sold it and LLPX made it into a GP38-2. Oddly 2259 looks different then the 2269 whom its leading: http://www.railroadforums.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=39454&cat=500&perpage=18&ppuser=3391
  6. CBNS in the marsh

    CBNS in the marsh

    Two LLPX GP38-2's (2269 & 2259) lead a trio of HATX SD45-2's (910, 907, 912) over the marsh. Do to heavy grades this is not uncommon, especially with 30+ cars.

    Power & Beauty

    A CBNS E/B passes through town with: HATX 910 (SD45-2) LLPX 1508 (GP15-1) LLPX 1506 (GP15-1) LLPX 2259 (GP38-2) HATX 912 (SD45-2) Pulling a mixed freight of mostly empty coal hoppers.
  10. Coming or going?

    Coming or going?

    Although you probably can't tell by the photo, LLPX 2259 is actually going away, being the last engine in a two engine power move.
  11. On the curve

    On the curve

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) are entering a curve just outside of town.
  12. HATX 910 & LLPX 2259

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) lead a short train on the edge of town. The building with a pointy roof in the backround is the station. As you can see the track curves a lot.
  13. Sunset LLPX

    Sunset LLPX

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) lead a westbound into the setting sun.
  14. Into the sunset

    Into the sunset

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) lead a train of tankers, scrap gondolas and coal cars into the sunset. Do to a lack of daylight the train isn't always photographable at this time of day.
  15. Short CBNS train...

    Short CBNS train...

    How short is your train? This one is pulling four tankers with a SD45-2 and a GP38-2! HATX 912 & LLPX 2259 are on the job crossing a short trestle.
  16. LLPX Railway?

    LLPX Railway?

    Sure seems like it, as LLPX 1506 is sandwitched by LLPX 1508, a fellow GP15-1 and LLPX 2259, a GP38-2. Note that its Conrail heritage is showing. The two other locomotives in the lash-up were HATX SD45-2's.
