Saskatoon Steel

  • Romet
A local is heading heading out to the city steel mill.

The photo is real, but the train isn't. The Geeps are switching a set of cars (http://tinyurl.com/yt6ver mostly bulkheads gondolas and covered gondolas, sometimes flats) that have arrived on 542. They're most likely from the US, since if they were from the West they'd come in on 456, or on 455 from the East. Another give away is that the cars have CNW and ICE reporting marks. Note that the Geeps showcase a 20 year evolution of CPR's paint scheme. From the 'CP Rail multimark' to the modern 'Ingenuity'.
