CN Test Train

The CN TEST train has been roaming around the Maritimes in the past few days. It has CN 6000 for power with two TEST cars behind it.

Saturday June 13: Arrived at Gordon Yard in Moncton at 16:30 with 30-35 cars in tow behind it.

Sunday June 14: By Sussex subdivison milepost 5.5 at 09:20 heading toward Saint John.

Monday June 15: It made a quick visit to Halifax. It rolled through Rockingham Yard around 16:55, proceeded to the Halifax Ocean Terminal (HOT) and turned on the container pier loop track, then returned to Rockingham by 18:00 and tested to Millview. They backed into the yard, waited for VIA 14 to arrive, then headed out. They were through Windsor Junction at 18:30 heading west to Moncton.

Thanks to everyone on the AtlanticRails list for the great sightings.
