June 29 Sightings
I saw a couple of trains on my way to and from the airport on June 29.
First, a CEMR train was waiting at the beginning of the Carman subdivision to enter the CN Rivers subdivision to go east at 10:26. CEMR 4001, 4011 and 4002 were at the head of a long grain train.
CEMR 4011 recently arrived in Winnipeg from the Windsor & Hantsport Railway in Nova Scotia. I reported back at the end of April that 4011 and 4014 were being readied to go back home, with the purchase of the "new" GE units for the W&H. They left in May and 4011 was in Winnipeg at the beginning of June.
On my way back, I saw that the CEMR train was still waiting there at 11:30. As I rounded the city on the Perimeter, I saw a CP train heading north on the La Riviere subdivision. I shot it just as it crossed the Perimeter by the BrettYoung seed plant.
CP 1128 and 3028 are old friends, commonly assigned to the La Riviere subdivision. I have seen them a few times.
