TWILIGHT ON THE ROCK - Terra Transport Extra 945 West runs upgrade through Bowring Park in the center of St. John's with just barely enough light to capture this image. A daily scheduled 547 mile run to Port aux Basques, this time it left the capital city with a unique consist of only four 1200 horsepower units and two cabooses. Upon arrival at Bishops Falls early the next morning, it would pick up a coach (and in all likelihood several empty containers at Grand Falls) making it a mixed run to Corner Brook.

  1. Life is indeed full of amazing and wonderful co-incidences. I have since released a second book, RAILS AROUND THE ROCK – A Then & Now Celebration of the Newfoundland Branchlines (2014), also published by Creative Book Publishing. You may be interested to learn that 100% of my share of the royalties from both books are directly sent to various charities by Creative. I am currently working on a third book, this time on the St. John’s Street Railway.

  2. Rather strange co-incidence today, Kenneth…I purchased a copy of your Rails Across the Rock (2013) book today. I did not know you were an author. Looks like a delightful read.

  3. Thank you Sir! It was my first and only time seeing such a consist. I was waiting for dozens of the trailing green Terra Transport intermodal containers behind the first two engines as it rounded the curve and couldn’t believe my eyes! Even the double caboose lash up was a rarity!

  4. Really nice, Kenneth. And oh so rare.
