MM&A newcomer

Postby St-Jean Diamond » Sun Aug 22, 2004 12:39 pm

Hi! Just joined the forum today after reading you guys for more than a year. I live near the St-Jean (Qc) CN-CP diamond (Adirondack-Rouses Point) and see MMA traffic quite often as some head from Farnham to Montreal and others exchange with the CN here in St-Jean. Once in a while, I head to Farnham to take some pictures of those ''old'' C30-7 GE's smoking like hell while switching cars in the yard; man what a show this is!!! and the sound is awsome! Got a lot of precious information from you guys, keep up the good work and many thanks.

Well, you know what they say.... "Inside every GE is an Alco trying to get out"... through the exhaust stack, apparently! :-D
"What was it the engines said?
Pilots touching, head to head,
half a world behind each back?
'They should have made this double track'"
