    Play it again, Sam

    CN 314 pull through town with the same power hosted by the previous 303, a common arrangtment among Scotford trains. Sometimes he gets units from the CN 852.

    CN SD40-2W 5250 and BCOL 4543 pull out of the Riverview siding after meeting counterpart CN 314. After the routine crew change and switch lining, CN 303 will take to the Warman sub. The CN 520, who is waiting on his heels, will then go back to the yards.

    CN Dash-9 Diversity

    CNIC 2716 with step-sister CN 2506 are nothcing up with CN 112, our equivilent to the BNSF Z-LACWSP. They were making good time, too. I think Chris de Vries was in the cab for this run.

  14. Random Rehash

    Random Rehash

    The CN 114 sported identical leaders the last time I came out here. This, Ironically, is the CN 314. But this train shows no signs of Calgry origin, as he carried all the battle scars of the 450 from Scotford. He even had the Santa Fe 38036, which I caught on the 303 last week. He came off the...

  16. The 114 Today

    The 114 Today

    The 114 has been pulling grain from the yard in town here alot recently. He had atleast 40 cars worth of it up front this time. All the 8000 series units have been flocking the 115/114 trains latley, too.
  17. BNSF 4550

    BNSF 4550

    As this train was leaving the yard at the south end of Seattle, another was entering the yard with 2 Santa Fe Warbonnets on the head end. Unfortunatly it was on the farthest track from me and I couldn't get a photo. Just my luck.

  19. CN 199

    CN 199

    The CN 199 has been very elusive, and this is the first good photo I have managed to take of it. The train now seems to have 3 units, and nothing but single stack Intermodals. I enjoyed seeing this power consist, as it took me back to the golden ages of 2001, when all CN Intermodals sported this...
