|Here is an "Across the Water" shot of a southbound at about Mille 41.|
|The next morning was bright and sunny, and here is a southbound at Mille 21, with one of the Alco demonstrator units on the point. July 15, 2000.|
|Here is one of 2 shots I got of the red/white/blue units, here shown northbound at Mille 48.5 on July 15th.|
|This southbound is at Mille 51.6, the furthest north we would get on this trip. July 15, 2000.|
|And this spot just south of Charles became known as "Black Fly Curve", again for obvious reasons! July 15, 2000.|
|This was a late afternoon northbound just north of Tunnel No. 1 - July 15, 2000.|
The same train as above, just backed off on the zoom lens. One of the best sequences of the entire trip!
|A quick run to the crossing at Mille 31 got the same train in that nice late afternoon sunshine. July 15, 2000.|
|The next day we went up to the crossing at Mille 49.5 and as it turned out this was the only decent shot I got of the R/W/B units. Southbound at Mille 50 on July 16, 2000.|
|After a couple of more days of shooting cloudy photos and videos of the Cartier, it was time to start heading back. Here is a GP of unknown heritage at Baie Comeau on July 19, 2000 switching the yard.|
|This is at Clermont - the only equipment around. July 19, 2000.|
|Late that evening at Drummondville we got 2 of the VIA LRC trains. It is nearly dark but with the lens nearly wide open I still managed to get a decent photo. July 19, 2000.|
|July 20 actually was sunny most all day long! Here at Richmond, PQ, is a SLQ train doing some switching near the yard in great early morning sun....|
|The local train came out and also did a little switching. July 20, 2000.|
|We then chased this train a little ways out of Richmond (sorry, but I didn't make a note of where this was taken!). Not too often the sun is on the train and cloudy in the background. When it does happen, it does make for a good photo. July 20, 2000.|
|We then started the chase on the 4 unit M420W train....this shot is near Waterville on July 20, 2000.|
|One of the best shots of the trip was here at Coaticook...for once, the lighting was just perfect!|
|Late on the evening of the 20th we got this shot at Rock Forest of a westbound CDAC train.|
|The 21st also had some sun, and here is a SLQ train near Sherbrooke.|
|The next day we headed back into the States and at Claremont Jct., NH I got my only shot of a New England Central train.|
|Continuing on to Bellows Falls we got this unit just getting ready to start some yard switching.|
|Here is a set of Guilford power picking up some cars from the VT Ry interchange at Bellows Falls, July 22, 2000.|
|And the last shot of the trip was of the Green Mountain's RS1, having just arrived at the station with the tourist train.|
All in all, despite worse weather than usual, it was still a really nice trip, and if I can get the chance to go back to the Cartier again, I certainly will do so!
