    Illinois Central (Gulf) 6032

    IC 6032 along with 3 other engines moves around the Johnston Yards in Memphis, TN
  2. Dartmouth, NS

    Dartmouth, NS

    I've never been to Dartmouth, however here's a picture of it, taken from the other side of the bay, the Halifax waterfront. Two CN SD75I's have come off the Gypsum train and are waiting in the yard. Although it is hard to see, a 47xx series GP38-2 is hiding behind them, with a load of autoracks...

    GTW Sandwich

    CN/NS train 41T rolls west.
  4. Waiting


    I took this opportunity to take this shot when the RTC put us in the hole to get passed by an extended run train.
  5. Night Light

    Night Light

    CN 5792 arrives at Riverview at 19:50. I'm pleasantly surprised about how this shot turned out. Usually night shots trun out like crap.
  6. My CN hotspot?

    My CN hotspot?

    If I drive 20 minutes on my bike outside of town, this is the closest CN spot I can reach. I don't like it very much as its far from home, trains go fast doing 60miles/hour and it doesn't help that it's a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. That's why I chose to railfan CP instead on a regular...
  7. They may look fast..

    They may look fast..

    But these 2 SD75is are actuallu going really slow. Infact, the end of the train even came to a stop on the bridge! No doubt he was receiving a crew change in the yard. CN 5732 and 5726 head up an intermodal. The train also contained a "Long Runner" set.
  8. Sunrise on Sunday

    Sunrise on Sunday

    The sun hits the hood of CN 5724, which is leading R916 to Humboldt.
  9. A revised western

    A revised western

    CN 2229 and 5719 ride on out of the sunset and behind a fellow stacktrain for a meet with the stack manifest.
  10. Another Eastbound

    Another Eastbound

    CN ES44DC 2229 and SD75i 5719 lead another Q-train onto the siding only minutes after 2225 had got on. At this point I was fearing a rearending.
  11. CN 5777: The triple 7

    CN 5777: The triple 7

    CN SD75i 5777 leads a Q-train passed Riverview. And, entireley on coincedince, I also caught CN 5333 lastnight aswell!
  12. CN SD75i 5785

    CN SD75i 5785

    The CN SD75i. A natural born leader. On this train atleast. CN 5785 leads a long westbound manifest stack train.
  13. Eyes in the night

    Eyes in the night

    The headlights on CN 5736 shine brightly as it readies it's self to cross the South Saskatchewan river. The SD75i was trailed by a C40-8M. But alas, I didn't get the number.
  14. Eastbound stacks

    Eastbound stacks

    An Eastbound stack train passes over the South Saskatchewan river bridge at Riverview. The leads units were SD75i 5736 and a Noodle painted C40-8M.
  15. Thats the CN for ya!

    Thats the CN for ya!

    Putting the older powere ahead of the brand-new. 5630 smokes its way eastbound with ES44DC 2239 and SD40-2 5372. The train bescide it is an eastbound with 5541 and 2446 on the point. That train would still be coasting too a stop.
  16. CN SD75I

    CN SD75I

    CN SD75I leads a stack train into Halifax.
  17. Potash Loads East

    Potash Loads East

    CN 5734 leads a heavy potash train bound for eastern ports thru Newtonville Ontario. The engineer had the units notched out, evident by the heavy heat exhaust thanks to the cold temperatures. The detector clocked him at a blistering 25mph.
  18. GE vs. EMD

    GE vs. EMD

    You can tell which one is which by the wing. While the Dash 9-44CW & SD75I and vice versa lash-up are very common on CN, it's not easy to zoom in and get this shot. You can see the minor GE/EMD differences by looking at the two 4000 h.p. beasts.
  19. Traffic jam

    Traffic jam

    On one of my first visits to Portage JCT (I visit that place about once/twice a week) I was lucky enough to catch a great traffic jam. I've seen bottlenecks since, but this one is by far the best. Let's break it down: In the foreground, E/B CN local with CN 1435 & 7220 (GMD1u & GP9RM)...
  20. CN 393

    CN 393
