Cars on CN Nos 376/369/305, May 2016

St Lawrence & Atlantic SLR 109 
On Saturday, May 7 I was trackside along CN's Kingston Sub in Belleville, ON. On a previous visit to Belleville on March 12, I found myself photographing two things: passing CN and VIA trains, and the cars CN was hauling. On both days, CN Nos 376 (Toronto to Riviere des Prairies, QC) and 305 (Moncton to Toronto) made an appearance. On May 7, CN No 369 (Arvida to Toronto) also put in an appearance. Some mundane cars on these three trains caught my eye, and I'll share them in captioned photos in this post. Mid-track cars are on 376, near-track cars are mostly on 305 and some 369.

Railroader and model railroader Steve Lucas is blogging about the Midland Railway in 1956. Looking forward to lots of engrossing posts from Steve.

The RCMP Musical Ride is coming to Kingston this year. Currently they're strutting their stuff in the UK, at the Windsor Horse Show, including special performances for the Queen's 90th Birthday celebrations.
