    I have a grade crossing on either side of my place so I get some warning when a train is coming. If their westbound coming down the mountain I only get a couple of minutes eastbound I can generaly feel them(freights anyway) about the same time as they blow for Greenville Anyway yesterday I heard a westbound and rushed to the window to see two big black GE's backed up by three of the scruffiest GP38-2's you'd ever want to clap eyes on. I'm hopin' to catch them comin' back (they go a lot slower, usually) so I can get some pics

    Man where are you ? No there not worse than that 'cause thats one of them, I jotted the numbers down to look up on CN SIG and of course now can't find the shred of paper but I'm 100% sure that's one of the triplets that I was talking about . Whatta small world eh.

    Never mind, after askin' where you were I checked out your bio, neighbour. By some erird twist just as I sent that reply I heard a freight blow for the crossing and the third unit was 4732 and it is worse than 4722 ...much

    I've seen 4732 down in this neck of the woods before, and i agree, it's beat to death! Shame i didn't have my camera with me at the time. These units are the ones i'd like to try and replicate in N-scale.

    Man I must be psychic !!! Up untill a coupla day's ago there was at least four freights and two VIA trains a day, now there is one each. One each east one day , one each west the next . What gives?? I haven't seen anything on the news about a wreck, and evn if there was it wouldn't take this long to clean up
