A Freezing Cold Day of Railfanning In Durand

Unread postby Wabash1070 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 8:34 pm

Today (January 2nd 2018) I decided to go to Durand and managed to catch some pretty good stuff

Our first train of the day was a HESR (I think 701) with 2 EMD SD40s for power

Next was a nice and long CN M399 with CN 2845 on point

Next Train was CN A451 with a single CN SD70M-2 Leader

Whoa, that's one huge downhill HESR is going down. What kind of grade percentage is that, 20% or so?
