all CP power

A all CP power coal train heading north thru Edmonds Wa. This is the frist all CP coal train i have seen here.this is at Dayton St. MoW buildings and workers ,the track stacked up to right at the tool house are for the tear out of the main at Main St. tonite and the ballast to left is also for this use.This train also had one DPU on the rear.
This is a new train. BNSF-CP-CN routing from Wyoming coal fields to Prince Rupert, BC. I caught it at Great Falls, MT back in July.
Agree, Hobo. Have seen plenty of the CN version of this train, first time I've seen an all CP consist. When it went south through Mt. Vernon, had 3 units on the point, and no DPU.
Great catch! I saw the returning power headed south on Sunday as it crossed the border. I didn't know this was a variant of the Rupert trains, I thought they might have been a CP detour, and with only three units now vs. mostly four when CN ran 'em, these things must have a hard time getting up to northern BC.
You know, I been seeing a mixed bag of power on these coal trains here at Longview, today I saw one coal train with two Warbonnets, one SD75 and the other was a GE with the usual AC traction locomotives.
