Several people have noticed that NB Southern has had their passenger cars in the Island Yard shops. Speculation was that they were preparing them for the New Brunswick Day excursion with the Premier. Well, they are definitely repainting them!
Bob Boudreau got these shots of NBSR 5471 crossing the Reversing Falls bridge this weekend.
It looks like they painted the roof and undersides too, and maybe even replaced the diaphragms! They look sharp so far. I assume they will be decaled in the Dever Road yard.
This is what the three passenger cars used to look like. This is NBSR 5448 but they all had the VIA colours with NBSR on one end.
Thanks to Bob for the photos!
