  1. Curvy train photo

    Curvy train photo

    The rear of a CBNS freight turns a curve as the train drives on the fine line under the hill and above the marsh that leads into the ocean. If you look carefully you'll see a road in the top left corner, I've railfanned that spot before; here is the other view of the same curve...
  2. CBNS tanker train!

    CBNS tanker train!

    When there isn't a lot of traffic it's possible to see a pure tanker train on CBNS like this one. That doesn't happen often however as ussually in addition to the tankers there are coal cars, scrap gondolas, hoppers and boxcars! The asphalt you see in the foreground is the former VIA station...


    A nearly 40 car train comes to and end. It's unusual to see PROX cars on the back, as ussually its GATX or the green coal cars.

  8. A survivor form 1946!

    A survivor form 1946!

    Build in 1946, went into service in 1947, most of the fleet retired in 1973. Looking at how well it is preserved, I'm guessing it spend the last 30 years in a sliding somewhere. Now it's at the scrapyard, waiting to be scrapped. I've seen a lot of relics there, but this has to be the best!


    It's got some bad stuff inner.
