Now that CP is once again leasing CEFX SD90MAC's, they have become somewhat common, leading 454 solo in this case. Normally this is a SD40-2 trio train, with CEFX SD90MAC's appearing exclusively on potash trains once a month or so.
CEFX sure didn't spend a fortune decalling this unit, aside from '104' on the back there's nothing! Compare that to their popular CEFX AC4400CW fleet that has lines flowing across the long hood, same thing with their SD40/SD45 line.
I remember just a few years back(Late 90's) when the CP transfer from Eastport/Edmenton bound for Roseville, CA came through southern Oregon. It was the most colorful train on the line. Usually it would have a UP AC4400CW-CTE, CP AC4400CW, CEFX AC4400CW or CEFX SD90MAC. It was always the train to catch!
I believe CP still uses that kind of power in and around Eastport. Lots of UP power going through there, some of it comes up here on potash trains.
