Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
Yesterday, I got word that CN 3023, the EJ&E heritage unit, was on CN 324 out of St. Albans. Not wanting to pass this up, we got ready to head north. Just before we left, though, I heard that 650 was coming south from Montreal with CP 7013, a CP heritage unit! We headed north to Rouses Point, hoping to catch 650 before 324. A new CP sign caught my attention.
At this point we were facing a dilemma- 650 was nearing Rouses Point, but 324 had departed St. Albans heading north. As time ticked on, I knew we could only catch one train… so we went with 650, as that was chasable south to Plattsburgh.
650 rolled into Rouses Point as drones filled the air- I wasn’t the only one shooting this train!
Ironically, 7013 was the first CP heritage unit I ever caught, as the DPU on a 650 back on October.
As the head end cleared CPC 191, we headed south to Washington Ave. in Chazy. We beat 650 there by quite some time…
The rear DPU was nose in yet again, a seemly increasing trend. Hmm, could that mean the power will get wyed and 7013 will lead back north?
Next stop, Spellman Road in Beekmantown. The track is perfectly straight for well over a mile here, so while I could see the headlight from the moment I got out, it still took a couple of minutes to get to the road.
While we half-heartedly chased to Plattsburgh, there was no way we would make it in time. 931 was sitting in Bluff for 650, so we shot them at Miller Street. Another double-ACe lashup? Heck yeah!
Finally, after a stop at Subway, we headed home. -Harrison
