We fought through the country music fans assembling for the big concert tonight, and made it to the zoo. It was a great visit and the weather was great. Too bad the miniature train wasn't running. :(
I called VIA and found out that VIA 15 wasn't expected in until 17:20. We ate supper at Steve's Diner in Riverview, and as we walked to the van I figured the Ocean would be departing the station. I switched the scanner on, and sure enough someone was reporting that the main line switch was lined and locked for the normal position. They were en route!
I drove across the causeway, and ran up the slope to the tracks while switching tapes in the video camera. I arrived with not a moment to spare at 17:52 as VIA 15 went by. 6428 and CBC unit 6403 led 18 Renaissance cars and Evangeline Park.
