Decided to take a quick (ok not so quick) drive through Canaan to grab a bite and see about seeing some freight. This crossing is just west of the Canaan Tunnel and is a nice place to catch a few trains coming through... surprisingly both these trains were only about 5 minutes apart which seemed a little close...

First Train...

All quiet again... we waited a few to see if we could go "three-for-three" but no dice..

Have you ever taken a ride up to the State Line tunnel on the B&A? Its right in Canaan I believe. If not its definetly something to check out next time your near Canaan. Heres a photo showing atrain exiting the east portal back in March.

We were actually going there yesterday... someone got their camera a little dirty so we decided to wait till a different day... but I have posted a couple shots from the other side of the tunnel... it was kinda spooky when I went there alone... these pics from yesterday are just west of the tunnel at Wagners Crossing Road...
