Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Filenames refer to location, date (dd.mm.yy), and camera-assigned four digit id number.

April 24th, 2019We started our day in Moncton, catching an unexpected double-ended train on the bridge at the Reversing Falls as we wrapped up lunch, missing what would have been an excellent bridge shot. We finished our day in Campbellton, hearing the incessant squawk of an EOT, which we found attached to five cars near the Via station with no sign of the train they were meant to be attached to. They were gone the next morning.
