On The Bridge

CN 346 on the Floodway, Winnipeg
I was out near Symington looking at a new office Thursday around noon when I spotted a train about to leave the yard. CN 346 was backing onto her DPU engine in preparation to head down the Sprague subdivision. When I was done my inspection, I got ahead of it at Tinker Town and shot the lead unit, Dash-9 CN 2656. The engines were running flat out pulling the train up to speed.

I sped on ahead, wanting to shoot the train crossing the bridge over the Floodway. It took a few minutes for the train to get there.

After a few minutes, the DPU unit (CN 8822) rolled on by.

Even though the weather was cloudy, it was nice to see the train.

You might remember I shot train 346 on the Floodway before, albeit from a different angle and in a different season.
