Return of the Railiner

It's been 28 years since CN Railiners have come through on the Warman sub, following VIA's big cuts of 1981. A real shame, considering that Saskatoon had the most assigned CN RDCs back when the service first started (7 units!).
Old RDC-1 D-108 (turned VIA 6108) came back however in the form of a Track Geometry Test car. Long name, but at least it's a self-propelled RDC with working MARS lights! Seen here coming off the Warman sub onto the Madison spur into Saskatoon yard, before proceeding onto the Craik sub to Regina the next day. VIA 622 is back, coming from Prince Albert presumably given the Carlton Trail train # designation. Not surprising, given that I spotted a SRS doodlebug in Warman this time last year. Those railcars are normally used by CP for track testing.
