Might this be the train NS is sending to the DNC in Boston? Should be CP-Draw in Buffalo at 0700.

If folks who see this train could add to this thread, I'd appreciate it.

I saw it come through Chatham, NY earlier this week. Really wierd to see a NS unit on the Boston Line, you would assume that they would of used Guilford's B&M if those two are so buddy-buddy... Nice to see a nice long passenger train roar by the old station not in Amtrak colors.
