Maine Northern 9801 in McAdam... and CN 4102

Maine Northern Railway 9801 in McAdam, NB. By Brian Barchard
Brian Barchard sent along a few shots of Maine Northern Railway #9801 in McAdam. He spotted it there on the afternoon of August 20 (Saturday). They came into McAdam with a bunch of empty log cars. After dropping them in the west yard, they wyed the engine, and presumably left.

I guess it came back to McAdam a few days later, because Gary Lee shot it there on August 23. It looks like it was coming off the wye.

Brian also mentioned he saw CN 4102 heading west through Harvey toward McAdam on the evening of August 21. As it turns out, Gary was out and saw it shunting the yard in McAdam that night.

CN 4102 has been working in Saint John. Kevin Gaudet caught it and CN 4132 as part of CN 406 on June 11 heading to Saint John.

Matt aka Saintjohnrailfan shot the same train in Hampton, closer to Saint John.

Good railfan coverage all over!

I know that NBSR has acquired these units recently, but have any of the Maine Northern units seen Maine yet? All the pictures I have seen seem to have been taken in NB.

I hope NBSR will have better success in Maine than its predecessor.
