SD40-2W trio Grain

  • Romet
CN 865 came down the Warman sub, turned 870 heading East on the Watrous mainline after a crew change at Chappell JCT. Three SD40-2Ws with 6239ft of grain on a Class I in 2010!

GEVOs running DPU can take a hike any day for this lash-up. Sadly they are the regular power, while the SD40s are dropping like flies.
Has 5272 been around Saskatoon for awhile? It was in Brandon for almost a year working with 5271.
I wonder why the SD40-2's are working as main power again?
