NB Southern new units

I'm back from Mexico. No trains sighted (except the Pearson shuttle) but a great time was had by all. Back to rail news..

Crandic units GP35M 110 and 112 were spotted outside the Rockford Road shops January 3 with their heralds removed and road numbers painted out. They are waiting for the money transfer to be completed, then they will be on their way to New Brunswick. They should arrive in Saint John on CN 306 and will go straight into the shop at Island Yard for repainting before they are put into service. No word yet on what NBSR numbers they will receive. I vote for 9804 and 9805, not that my opinion matters!
