I was also out in the rain awaiting for the circus train. While I did not see the train, I did see the Q156, the 18N, 32A and the Q409, in that order (thanks for the train info). I was hoping for the circus train when Q409 was stopped for a signal and Q301 was stopped behind the Q409 and there was a yellow signal for the next westbound. But shortly after six, and no sign of the train, I called it a day. Earlier in the day, I saw 33K (ex-43A), a NS power move 2 UP engines, 1 NS D9-44CW and 2 PRR C8-40s and then 18G. On my day off, I was hoping the weather would be nicer.

Well, I missed the circus move. Try to catch it in the area at CP-potters, but to no avail. Anyone get pictures of it?
