CP P34 GP38-2 GP9u Combo

CP P34 with a rare GP38-2 GP9u combo brought 57 cars to viterra elevator in Redvers. CP 8251 which is often in charged of yard duty in the manitoba district in Brandon or Winnipeg but mainly seen in Brandon.
Wounder why these units are out side there yard duties working grain. CP has no power or is it all parked?
Clayton, the 8200s are road units. Quite rare down here except for the TEC trains, but common in the East.
The reason 8251 showed up in town is that there was absolutely no power left in the yard. They had 3024 3116 but they were on there way to Kilarney MB so the P34 crew got the yard power.
Alot of the time the Redvers turn and the kilarney turn share power unless there is six axle units. If there is Six axle units they will come here because the kilarney line doesnt allow six axle units.
