Well it's Halloween today and everyone usually associates it with orange pumpkins but I thought I'd post a few photos I took this morning on the waterfront of CN 2319. I'm sure the unit won't look this clean for long hauling containers out of the Port of Prince Rupert.

Well I made a quick trip to Prince George on Wednesday October 20th under low cloud and rain showers the whole trip. Along the way I did manage to catch a glimpse of the occasional train along the way. These photos where taken from the South side of the Skeena river at Coyote creek about 2 miles West of Cedarville on Highway 16.

Well it looks like the BARBARA FOSS is back towing the rail barge between Prince Rupert and Whitter again. The JEFFERY FOSS had been doing the job during the last while. Barbara is along side the Aquatrain barge which is listing to port because it was only partly loaded as the photo reveals.
Well I managed to catch CN crews using a rather odd looking piece of equipment along the waterfront this morning. When I asked what it was, I found out it is an ultrasound unit used to inspect the rails for fatigued areas in the steel.
