Remarks & Notes 
A windmill train rounding the bay. Three ex-CP RS-18's (two recently repainted into an SP Black Widow-inspired paint scheme) lead a train consisting of 72 flat cars holding 48 windmill blades (as well as 1 loaded woodchip car up front), as it rounds the Baie des Chaleurs, headed for Matapedia and interchange with the CN. These windmill blades are destined for Texas and represent a new business for the Société du chemin de fer de la Gaspésie, which runs this scenic ex-CN line. About 15 railfans chased this train, with quite a number of American railfans visible at right, just behind the power.
