    New power on the NBSR

    I was pleasantly surprised last night when I showed up, saw this ex NS GP40 third out on CP's 120 job switching in Brownville Jct. Eventually we would be taking this unit east with our own power, once CP was done switching out there CP blocks.

      Hi Shawn,

      Look'n good... Maine railroads kind of lost me when they stopped with the Harvest Yellow and Pine Tree Green scheme - had to be one of the classiest I've ever seen.

      You guys ever see that Allagash model railroad? Reminds me of the area around Brownsville.

      Scott

        Gerry, correct. Was painted about a month or so ago up at the CAD facility in Montreal.

        Scott, I have to agree. Harvest Gold and Pine tree green was one of the greatest schemes in New England, along side the Bangor & Aroostooks tri color scheme before Iron Roads took over.

        But, NBSR's scheme isn't too far behind.
