Via 14 I took last week. Train left on Friday March 16th form Montreal on time, but we got an engine failure and were stuck halfway between Trois-Pistole and Rimouski for over 4 hours. Train ended up 4 hours and 40 minutes late, and was further held an extra 10 minutes longer than expected in Moncton (where I got off) meaning it left Moncton with a faiirly overwhelming 4 hours and 50 minutes late. (Damn, even the Montreal-Senneterre and Montreal-Jonquiere are that bad)

Taken in Halifax. And I very narrowly missed that one. It was taken on South Street, roughly 3-4 minutes after the starting point.

Took on friday August the 3rd. I was visiting my grandmother with in Wemotaci with my Mother and brother and asked to be lifted to the Sanmaur station. Recorded the train from the oposite side of the "station"

On a side note, I will probably go to Windsor, Ontario in 3 weeks (waiting for my AirBNB to confirm my reservation and I have enough points to book a free round trip. So, any suggestions for good train spotting in the area?

EDIT: I just booked my tickets to go to Windsor. I'm kinda exited

I was in Windsor for the last few days (left this morning on the 70, currently on the 40 toward Ottawa thenI'll take the 28 back home to Quebec City)

Yesterday was WAY too hot to walk around the city, and even the evening was barely... bearable? So I decided to film both the 75 and 79. I unfortunately missed the arrival of the 75 because it arrived almost 10 minutes early, but I did film it backing up. And I got the 79, which arrived 10 minutes late.

75 backing up from Wimdsor Station:

79 arriving at Wimdsor (we can also see the 75 parked next to it)

Had to change some seats at the Quebec Train Station, so I filmed a leaving train for the first time in a fairly long time.

This time it was the 35 on december 26th. Train left on time.

Spending the weekend in La Tuque. Last night, I decided to go to a nice spot between the La Tuque station and Fitzpatrick stop. The train was ludicrously late (11 hours) but I still went there at midnight to catch it. I was in for a nice surprise, as while waiting for the Via 603, I ended up seeing a wild CN Train backing up


And this is the 603 I mentioned.


Train was exactly 11 hours and 2 minutes late... Which, even by the 603's standards, is VERY late.
