514 just past the detector at MP 56.2 on the Holly Subdivision with 480 axles.

This would be a new defect detector, replacing the one at MP59.

I photographed southbound train 383(?) that cleared Masonic Road, Fraser, 1:49 p.m. It had 118 cars (including lots of loaded "Scrap Gondolas") led by CN ET44AC #3202 and "Blue" ET44AC #2909!!!! Now, did CN purchase these GE "Demonstrator" units? :?: If so, I couldn't see any "CN" markings!!!!!!!! On "The Diesel Shop" website it says CN number "3121" is "Ex-GE Demonstrators GECX 2029!!!!" I just saw number "2029!!!!" :shock: That "Contradicts" what the site shows!!!! :roll: It also shows CN "3122-3132" are "Ex-GE Demonstrators GECX 2033-2043!!!!" I have not seen any of these since they were "Supposedly" bought by CN (until today...3-22)!!!!
