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...

HATX 907, the forth unit between LLPX GP38-2 2259/69 and brother HATX 910/914. Since I focussed on taking this picture I don't know the exact unit numbers of the engines right beside it. This image should be a lifesaver for anyone modelling these units, as roof shots in general aren't too easy...
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...
Probably one of the most common lesor units of all time - EMD Leasing/GATX/LLPX GP38-2. CBNS has two of them on lease and this is the cleaner one! Leading a HATX SD45-2 and 9 tankers. Note the waterbottles on the hood.
Category: Lease Units, Demonstrators, Specials etc.
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.
