It would be cool if there was another train, but maybe they were going to meet the CN train between Pacific Junction and Moncton. We shall see!

Heh, it was fun! I was lucky to catch 305, I expected it to pass 40 minutes later than when it passed. My mom called me and said: "Luc, there is a long CN train going thru Rogersville...."
In the car I went and to the Xing! Got some decent shots, my going away shots were good, to shoot the front, I was in the sun and the camera wouldn't focus good. I was up at 0100 to video 308 go by West Collette Xing.
