BC Rail #4621

Rare BC Rail Dash8-40CM only 26 ordered this was on a 536 axle southbound manifest today going thru M.P.-18 Edmonds Wa. BNSF 2/22/2009
Very rare indeed, great catch, I wonder now that the BCR is a part of CN, why don't we see more of those 8^P
This unit was headed south, Saturday afternoon. It the fourth one in behind 3 H2s and in front of a CN C40-8, on a train from Thornton yard.

Good catch.
