First up was CN 103, which showed up just as I arrived near Diamond. CN 2296 was the lead engine.
CN 8837 was mid-train. Note the "new tire" on the rear of the truck.
CN 8012 was pushing on the rear.
About an hour later, the Canadian came rolling along.
This was still a summer consist with 20 cars... not bad.
About 15 minutes later, CN 104 came rolling in with two SD70s for power. CN 5619 was on the head end...
... and Illinois Central 1039 was behind her. I miss the black IC engines but this doesn't look too bad.
I didn't realize they were meeting CN 199 until I noticed that CN 5619 had her headlights dimmed. I wasn't quite in the right place to catch the actual meet.
Nice to see those BC Rail units still kicking around.
That was the end of trainspotting for me for that day. It was nice to get out and exercise my new lens. I'll have to write about the lens soon. :)
