CN 2229 is on the lead again, and is now charging east with 2542. They had just met another train and were notching out of a crawl. The 2229 has been pouring alot more fumes then most other GEVOs. Perhaps she is not being maintained very well? The tarped flat was laoded with locomotve axels.
The Trackside guide says nothing on the matter. The leader, CN 2229 made more exhaust than most Dash-9s I've seen. Or perhaps it was the trailing Connell SD40-3? Lost of empty stack cars and hoppers. The train also conceals an Algoma Central gondola.
While I've seen this many times, I've often not been unable to capture it, since the moment I take out the camera the smoking stops. This time I got lucky however. I was shooting brand new ES44AC, CP 8761 who is right in front of him, when all of a sudden he starts smoking. If you look really...
The C44-9W ain't the only thing making smoke at Riverview tonight! Snapped a few Teenagers in the process. CN 115 goes over the bridge with C44-9W 2662, SD40-2W 5296, SD40-3 GCFX 6068, and a rare SD40U.
CN SD60F 5541 and C40-8M 2446 take off west make a hell of a noise. They were just held for a westbound, and they have alot of reefer containers to get east. Out of most units, I have to say notheg on the CN smokes more than the C40-8M's. Except The C44-9Wl's I saw last week.
