Saint John Area Trains Yesterday

Matt the Saint John railfan and Dave Dineen were both out taping yesterday in the Saint John area.

Matt posted a really nice video of CN 405 in Rothesay and at Bloomfield Station road. The power was CN 2598 and 5706.

On the original video page there is a link to "watch in high quality". I think this is pretty new, unless I never noticed it before. It does make a difference!

Dave chased the NB Southern eastbound, starting at Welsford. The train had three engines (9801, 2317, and 2612) and 54 cars.

Dave described the chase in his blog. Apparently the last seven cars of the train derailed in the yard in Saint John.

With the High Quality option, it's on some of your videos also. That's where I first noticed that option. The video you took in January of CN going by Shoppers Drug Mart (returning from Potash Yard) looks amazing in HQ!

Thanks for mentioning the HQ Steve. I never noticed it there before either but what a great feature!
