Catch the Wave

IC 2708 in Winnipeg
On Tuesday (Feb 16) I went up to Wilkes Avenue to catch the Hudson Bay aka "the Winnipeg-Churchill train" as VIA is fond of calling it now. Bleah.

I didn't see the Hudson Bay but I did see a CN westbound freight train. It was headed by IC 2708 and had ex-BC Rail 4614 trailing, with an eclectic mix of freight cars following.

The engineer and the conductor both waved as they went by. I feel bad I didn't wave back, but I was busy with the camera. I should just wave every time.
Wave from IC 2708
Thanks for the wave!
