October 11 on the Bedford Sub.
There was a flurry of activity again on the Bedford Sub, Thanksgiving Monday.
120's power barely fit in the space between the trees at mile 13 of the Bedford Sub. The train was crossing a small causeway over a cove of Rocky Lake, and was about to drop down to sea level in Bedford.
Once again 407 was waiting to depart, and this time 120 cleared much more quickly at Millview. At 12:58, only 35 minutes after 120 had gone the other way, 407's power had crested the grade with an all-intermodal train for Moncton.
Normally that would be all I would expect to see during daylight, but there was also an extra Q120 with containers from Chicago for the Ceres pier in Halifax, that would arrive sometime later that afternoon. At 15:35 I caught them with my phone camera at mile 25 while on a walk through Laurie Park on Grand Lake. This one had GEVOs 2250 and 2342, which are still hanging around Halifax and being used as transfer power a week later.
