VIA Meets CEMR

I went out on Thursday (March 29) to shoot the Canadian, as I often do. I decided I had better hustle west on Wilkes because I was cutting it a bit close for time. As I turned west on Sterling Lyon at route 90, I saw a CEMR train heading west. Great!I got ahead of them and grabbed this shot of CEMR 4000 and CCGX 5232 leading a short train.I quickly zoomed west again to get them at Carman Junction.
