CITX 2799 (ex-UP SD45)

Former UP SD45, one of 41 SD40-2s at Moose Jaw, part of this impressive deadline lash-up: CP 5778-8264-5956-5766-5808-5599-5611-5816-5683-CITX 3091-2799-CP 8240-5643-8111-5696-5715-5692-5701-5709-5830-5805-5496-5702-5679

Can you spot another SD45 in there? Former DRGW, CP 5496 worked the hump yard before retirement.

At least two more deadlines closer to the shops:
CP 5734-5904-5869-6004-6003-5988 and
CP 5793-5668-5684-1593-5716-5829-pass car-5398-5753
Good eye Cal! CP 5496 former DRGW SD45, another laid off Calgarian looking for work out East.
I wonder why they just didn't keep her stored in Calgary unless once things start moving again she will be assigned to Moose Jaw
That Geep is sitting under the bridge, so no way to get good photos sadly. Interestingly two ex-SOO, ex-WC GP9s in the city as well - there are only 5 of them. Quite rare, didn't even know the existed since they're numbered with the more common CP 8200 series.
