    Former Rock Island Geep under new colors.

Got to wonder why he's...

  7. 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...

  17. 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...
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Conrail Geep

    Conrail Geep

    What we have here is the bell, some fuel lines and the usual rust. Not bad for an ex-Conrail Geep, currently lettered LLPX and working for CBNS. The photo was taken from a street which leads into the station, which is now a museum, so no trespassing. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
