A nice way to spend this Sunday morning!

(Train sightings on 9-13-09.)

... was to be trackside at the Lansdowne Road Grade Crossing (MP 58). In a relatively short timeframe on this sunny morning, my tally of confirmed trains sightings was four with one additional intermodal train seen but not identifed as I arrived around 8:30. Not a bad Sunday morning count, eh for this estimated forty-five minutes, eh? In time sequence, the trains were:

NS 18G @ 9:20- NS 9890 and NS 9604 had 127 cars of mixed freight. Could this train's length perhaps be an economic indicator that freight traffic is picking up?

NS 214 @ 9:40- provided an "UPlifting" sight with UP 4682 as its leader with NS 8795 and NS 9886.

NS IOG @ 9:49- had NS 9263 and NS 2720 for its motive power.

NS 212 @ 10:05- would have NS 9413, NS 2642 and a unidentified third NS diesel for its power.

Hope your Sunday morning was just as enjoyable...
