10 years ago today it was a lot snowier as NS 369 slowly pulled across the International Bridge to enter Canada and interchange cars with CN.  The practice continues today, often mid-afternoon, however the train symbol is currently NS C93.  It's a good way to get a dose of American railroading without actually having to cross the border, and given the short run from NS's Bison Yard you never now what power will show up on the train.  Unfortunately it won't be Conrail blue.

  1. It’s not a faux pas. It’s the truth – it’s not really a True Conrail engine anyway.

    EMD Conrail is very very nice :) Thanks for sharing Rob!

  2. I was waiting for someone to pick up on my faux pas… Michael wins. It could happen, several heritage units and special scheme locomotives have briefly made it in to Canada on this train.

  3. Could be Conrail blue if the Conrail heritage unit leads ;-) .

  4. Very nice.

  5. Excellent throwback!
