Train 25 between Kentville and Yarmouth, departs at 2325, mostly in the dark. The activity took 8 hours and 45 minutes.

Just after departing Weymouth at 0435 the sky starts to lighten.

A couple of miles north of Hebron, daylight!

Traveling along Doctor's Lake just south of Hebron.

Train 25 arrives in the Yarmouth yard.

Before they can book off for some rest before they head back to Kentville as Train 26 at 1810, the crew has some switching to do.

The Procor tankcar has to be spotted at the Texaco in the north end of Yarmouth, and then the SW turned on the wye.

The CN double door boxcar is for Spinney's on Water Street.

The empty tankar at Irvings needs to be lifted, once it's out of the way the CN reefer will need to go back to OMI Foods where we found it.

The CN boxcar was lifted from the interchange and will be going to Yarmouth Industrial Fabrics.

With the switching complete and Train 26 made up, it's time to find something to eat and a place to sleep after nearly 9 hours on the job.

That's some shift. Did you get OT?

From what I've been told, no overtime, just paid by the mile. I was about 15 minutes later arriving in Yarmouth then the ETT from 1973, but it doesn't allow any time for switching along the way, or time to switch in Yarmouth, so pretty close.

Nice to see CN's MV Bluenose docked in your last frame. I sailed on her in the early 1960's from Bar Harbor to Yarmouth. Will she be animated to depart and return, or is she only a static?

Really liking your interpretation of the DAR. Looks to be very immersive, I've traveled in the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia area several times. Good to be able to recognize the scenery.

I thought a lot about making the MV Bluenose animated and traveling along a submerged track but never got that far. When I added the flight paths for the Argus flying out of Greenwood back when I made the DARv2 they started to cause trouble with road sections for some reason so I trimmed them back in v3 but didn't want to take a chance adding even more track that might cause more trouble. I've been considering removing the remainder of the flightpath to see if that cures another road problem in Digby. Up until I laid the roads in Digby I was able to to a TDB rebuild with out any problems, now I had to stop doiing them.
