  1. 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...

  3. HATX from above!

    HATX from above!

    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...
  4. CBNS's finest power

    CBNS's finest power

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

    Tribute to CBNS

    Don't think I can make a more scenic photo of CBNS.
  6. SD45-2 Rooftops

    SD45-2 Rooftops

    HATX 912 didn't entirely fit in the photo, thus making room for HATX 907!

  9. HATX vs. HATX

    HATX vs. HATX

    With three HATX SD45-2's in HATX paint running on the CBNS (910, 907 & 914) I was under the impression that they all look the same. I had to see them side by side to be proven wrong by myself.
  10. Power & Beauty

    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.
  11. Odd meeting

    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...
  12. LLPX 2269 (GP38-2)

    LLPX 2269 (GP38-2)

    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.
  13. HATX 907 leading LLPX's

    HATX 907 leading LLPX's

    Three lessors are leading a 5unit train on the CBNS.
  14. HATX 907 (SD45-2)

    HATX 907 (SD45-2)

    One of 4 HATX SD45-2's working for CBNS.
  15. On the curve

    On the curve

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) are entering a curve just outside of town.
  16. 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.
  17. Sunset LLPX

    Sunset LLPX

    HATX 910 & LLPX 2259 (SD45-2 & GP38-2) lead a westbound into the setting sun.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. HATX 912 (SD45-2)

    HATX 912 (SD45-2)

    One of the four HATX SD45-2's leased by CBNS that still has its original scheme. Can you guess who's it is?
