Spoke Too Soon

I may have spoken a bit too soon, when I said there are no Alcos running on the NBEC any more. This video of NBEC train 403 leaving Bathurst yesterday puts the lie to that.

MLW RS-18 NBEC 1819 and SD40 NBEC 6901 led the train north out of Bathurst.

However, you can see that GP40s have replaced the RS18s on the Belledune-Brunswick Mines run.

CN 9402, 9461 and 9513 provided the power.

So, maybe I should modify my statement - no Alcos are regularly scheduled to run. For now. ;)
