Distributed Railfanning

Remember I posted that I saw the Hudson Bay yesterday? Well, it turns out that two other Manitoba railfans saw the same train, farther along the line.

Mark Perry saw it next in Dauphin, MB, still on time.

Next, Clayton Chaloner saw it in Grandview, MB in fading light.

Here is the video I took of the train in Winnipeg.

For some reason, this reminds me of the July 2006 VIA detour on the Napadogan sub. I had shot the westbound Ocean in Moncton, not realizing it was about to detour over the Napadogan subdivision due to a derailment in St. Noel, Quebec. My good friend Peter Gough shot it in McGivney. It's always interesting to see other railfans' shots of the same train you saw in different locations.
