One thing I did not expect to see was a report of Illinois Central "Death Star" leading CN train Q123 from New Brunswick to the states. However that's exactly what I saw on my lunch break on Friday. Luckily the report was still fresh and it would be just over 24 hours before it made its way past Montreal. It finally departed CN's Taschereau yard at after 1600. With clouds in the sky I wasn't sure if the trip all the way to Coteau from Ottawa was worth but but luck was on my side. Shortly after my initial shot the clouds opened up and the chase was on as far as Brockville. The long summer days are always appreciated when catching the last train.
