A quiet Good Friday in the yard at Stellarton, NS. This is the power that serves Michelin Tire at Granton NS and Northern Pulp at Abercrombie Point.

Along the all but abandoned 100 mile section of Sydney Subdivision east of St. Peters Jct on Cape Breton Island. It's been two years since a train has passed.

I managed to pass a CB&CNS train on the highway outside Antigonish while I was travelling through the Maritimes for a wedding last week

Thanks for that!

Yes, the gorge at Marshy Hope and one of the more scenic areas along the CB&CNS especially in the fall. Here’s a shot taken there when there was still passenger service between Sydney & Truro.
