Completely in New Brunswick
Author: cn6218

The last shot of the day on Wednesday was at Upper Dorchester, NB as the Ocean rolled along at 70 mph on its way to the next station stop in Moncton.  The Ocean has been a bit of a downer lately, with no domes at all in the consist, so I haven't exerted a lot of effort to go out and shoot it.  But since the freight trains were all done for the daylight hours, and we still had to head home to Nova Scotia, a short stop along the way wouldn't hurt anything.

In the first frame the train has the infamous Dorchester Penitentiary on the hillside in the background.  In the second the two F40s have passed what used to be the west end of the Upper Dorchester siding, now merely a CTC control point.  In the last we can see that the tide is out as the Ocean heads off towards Moncton.  The Memramcook River empties into the Bay of Fundy, and rises and falls 20 or more feet with the tide twice a day.  The track is constructed on Acadian dykes from the 1600s in many places along here.

Nice location and shots. In the last shot, it looks like it would take two prolonged episodes of heavy rain, and the gully could work back and jeopardize the road bed.
