CN 106 Meets The Canadian

I was out at noon on Monday to shoot the Canadian and I happened to catch a meet. As I arrived, I noticed an eastbound container train rolling along on the north track. I had a notion that I might be able to catch the meet, so I headed east toward Carman Junction. Sure enough, I saw headlights to the east that I figured was the Canadian. I parked near Carman Junction and hopped out to shoot. VIA got to me first.

You can see the "left" engineer was on the radio. It was a short Canadian with two engines and only one coach. Complete consistKokanee Park brought up the markers.

As they went around the bend west of Carman Junction on the south track, CN 106 passed them on the north track.

CN 2202 and CN 2669 were the power on this long container train.

It was nice to get the meet!
