The Canadian

At lunch I hoped to catch the westbound Canadian. I went up to Wilkes Avenue to my favourite spot near the CN-CP-BNSF diamond. I did not have long to wait until I saw headlights to the east, as the Canadian rolled into view. It was beautiful with the stainless steel cars glinting in the sun.
VIA 6438 and the Canadian in Winnipeg
It had 6438 and 6434 pulling 19 cars. Here's my quick video.

And just like that, it was gone.

Did you move out West? What prompted this move if you don't mind me asking? Either way, I hope you enjoy it out here. It seems like you're in a good area of Iron Rail activity!

Cheers,

Hi Jason, yes I have moved to Winnipeg. My wife wanted to move closer to her family. So far I like it... lots more trains than Fredericton!
