A Break From All Those GEs
Author: cn6218

Specifically, all those GEVOs, or as KG would say, the "Borings".

We got a bit of a respite this past week in Nova Scotia with an SD70M-2 showing up on 511, westbound at Lantz below on the 22nd.  Later that day, 120 arrived with a pair of "Thunder Cabs" (non-isolated cab SD70M-2s) leading, and 8867 as DPU as the train crossed Moirs Mill Pond in Bedford.  Sunshine hasn't exactly been in abundance either the past week.  I was lucky to get what I did here.

The next day at the same location, 120 was late once again, with Dash-9s up front this time, but a once common SD75I trailed, and another Thunder Cab was working as DPU.  8007 looks like it has had a re-paint at some point (sketchy lettering and no class designation).  Perhaps this is one of the SD70M-2s that has been run through the rotary dumper at Roberts Bank in BC. :-)

Since the 23rd was a Wednesday, VIA 15 was held up for 15 or 20 minutes at Millview, waiting for 120 to clear on the Transfer Track.  VIA has been all-GM down here since the end of the '80s, so it was wrapped 6402 leading the Ocean past Theodore Tugboat in his winter berth at the Bedford Marina.

And to finish off, Tremblant Park was bringing up the markers on the other Renaissance Ocean, as they left me at 13:49.
