NB Southern passenger excursion today

I'm going to chase the afternoon NB Southern passenger excursion today with my two oldest kids. I'll blog about it afterward, of course!

In case local people don't know, the schedule for the next couple of weeks is:
- Saturday May 13, leaving at 10 AM and 2 PM
- Saturday June 3, leaving at 10 AM and 2 PM
- Sunday June 4, leaving at 1 PM.

They are leaving from the Dever Road ex-station and proceeding to Welsford, where the engine will run around the consist and pull them back to Saint John. These excursions are part of the Rally of Hope to benefit the regional hospital.

I'm planning on shooting half-and-half video and stills. I have a fair amount of video of this train from previous years. I'd like to get a few good stills of the train at a few points where I would normally shoot video. I found a good spot at Welsford where I will shoot the engine running light. Of course, this assumes that everything goes to plan, which is a big assumption!

The big question is - a yellow or green engine pulling the train? I'm guessing... green. I'll even go out on a limb and guess.. 9801. :)
