Time for an Update

I know, I know!!! More than one person has mentioned I haven’t posted anything in quite a while and….well……. basically there hasn’t been much going on with my layout to report on. I am currently redesigning the layout and once I have something to show I will post my results. I will however bring you up to date on other happenings though.

On February 20th Luc, Trevor and myself went to PEI for a day of operations on Derwin’s Canadaisle RR and Scott’s BS&T. We had so much fun that day I just realized I didn’t even take any pictures! We left Moncton around 7AM and headed toward Aulac to stop at the Big Stop for breakfast then continue on to the Island. The weather wasn’t the best that morning with a bit of a snow storm going on but we took our time and got there safely but not without a couple tense moments. One person thought we were going to slow and decided to pass us on the highway with low visibility and quite slippery road conditions. The other was while on the island, if you have never been there, there are a lot of open flat fields which can cause drifting and whiteouts across the roads. One such incident we were heading for a meet with an oncoming transport truck, a whiteout and at least a two – three foot drift across the road. I got slowed down a bit just before hitting the drift, Luc was clenching the dash as hard as he could and I didn’t look in the back to see what Trevor was doing. We hit the drift at about 50 KM and it was like it wasn’t even there….WHEW!!!! The rest of the day was pretty good driving as the sun came out and ended up being a very nice day. We had such a great time I forgot to pick up my Red Pepper Jelly that Scott picked up for me a few days previous. The only place I can get this brand is on the island.

On March 19th the guys from the Island we going to Halifax for a day of operating so I asked to tag along. We met in Aulac and headed for the Halifax area. We operated on the Fall River Eastern Railroad and the White River Southern and had a visit to Nottingham Subdivision. It was a fun day for sure.

 

I would like to thank everyone involve in both these operation days for their hospitality and friendship!! We’ll have to do it again 😉

 

See Ya
