Freshly washed CN SD40-2W leads an empty coal train solo. Sadly I didnt take car counts back then, this was a full unit train though at least 70 cars. Normally two Dash 9-44CW type engines handle the job.
This is not an April Fool's joke, the train was actually spotted on April 1st.
I wonder how long these 5300's will be around?
Looking at what happend to the ones major SD40 & GP40-2W/GP40-LW CN rosters I'd say they'll keep retiring them, then leave ~40 good ones for at least five years.
