I just posted about some VIA trains I saw in May. Here's a grab bag of some other trains I saw in May.
Hmmm, let's see. I spent a bit of time at CN Subway on May 2 and I saw CN 199 heading west, with CN 2601 and CN 2298.
On May 5 I saw the usual BNSF transfer, still with BNSF 2756.
BNSF 2756 has been here for four and a half months... almost a record for BNSF in the past couple of years since long-time resident BNSF 1685 left.
Scoot ahead to May 26. I saw CN 106 in the afternoon around mile 9 of CN's Rivers subdivision. This was a grab shot.
Anyway, the interesting unit is the second one, SD70 IC 1004.
A few minutes later, I saw CEMR switching at Oak Bluff. CEMR 4000 and CCGX 5232 were doing the honours. This was a long telephoto shot, as you can see.
Note that CCGX 5232 used to be ANY 5232 (Athabasca Northern).
I mentioned I was in Portage la Prairie this past Saturday. There was a CP train doing some switching in the yard there by the old CP station. SD90 CP 9135 and faded SD40 CP 6040 were putting a grain train together.
Local switcher engine CP 3021 is locked away in its cage in the background.
When I was leaving Portage on the 28th, I saw a CP train heading east through the town. I got ahead of it on the east side of Portage and ended up shooting it at High Bluff in the rain.
I was leaning against the utility box (on the far side from the tracks) to keep steady and try to keep out of the rain.
There... now you're up to date.
PS Happy Glorious First of June!
