OFF ON THE 'OCEAN'. While travelling from Newfoundland to watch their son Thomas complete in the Atlantic Under 15 Soccer Championships in Fredericton, three modes of travel were availed off to get them to New Brunswick on June 23, 2011. Departing on an early morning Air Canada flight from St.John's ensured them plenty of time to catch VIA's 'Ocean' to Moncton before transferring to an Orleans bus bound for Fredericton. Lead by F40PH 6408 in the 'Coors Light Silver Bullet Express' scheme, the photographer captured the entire # 15 in the Halifax yard just prior to boarding the tri-weekly train. Later, both he and his wife Michelle would enjoy a delicious meal in the Renaissance diner on their four and a half hour journey to Moncton.
