All zebras!
November 20th, 2007
CN Riverview
1:41pm CN 560, 4 hoppers
CN 4797-4703-4792

A couple months ago I posted this photo of CN 560 as "CN Classic": http://tinyurl.com/2yqu82
Today the scene repeated with three Geeps! Two GP38-2W's sandwitching a GP38-2, all in classic zebra paint. Just like it was 30 years ago. Note that the first hoppers is an old Chessie cat! Now with WC reporting marks, although you can't tell unless looking at the original. Me thinks this beautifull lash-up brought in 548 last night - the only train left on the Craik sub. The train proceeded to meet another classic zebra odd-pair, GP38-2/GMD1u lash-up coming home from industrial switching, just like all those Dash 9-44CW's, SD75I's and other modern stuff doesn't exist.

Saskaton sure looks industrious with this backdrop, in reality city limits run right behind CN's main!
Hi Russian, I like your photo, and I would liked it more if it didn't have your name in the upper left. I'm not objecting to your name in the photo, I just objected to its placement. For my own amusement, I copied your name from the upper left, reversed it, removed the background and placed in in the water ripples at the bottom of the frame, as a straight line across the bottom, blending into the reflections. It's there, but almost invisible. The name became part of the photo.
I don't think I oculd live in a world without SD75Is. Or the prescribed era without black widow SD40s.
