    Sorry, no pictures, but for anyone who is interested...

    I saw a couple of neat things on the weekend (at least they were neat to me...!)

    - a couple of Wisconsin Central high-cube box cars
    - a TH&B gondola
    - a box car marked with the Sante Fe "cross", but it was inside a capital letter "Q"...?
    - a Canadian Pacific box car, but with the old "script" lettering
    - an entire train of auto-transporter cars, headed from Ottawa to ?Montreal? or ?Toronto?, including a couple of articulated cars
    - a train headed by a older engine (sorry, don't know - looks like a lot of the ones in Interurben/Chris' pics) and linked up with an SD90?? (the brand new engine with the CP "golden rodent" scheme), which was running backwards.
    - couple of VIA trains with the new engine on the front.

    I'll try and pay more attention next time, and to bring the camera ;)
