Some kind of monster

HZGX 183 worked the Warman sub today, went out with a full set (6 IMS cars full of ties), came back with 3.5 empties after tucking in the Airport spur for the Southbound 630 tramp (CN 1410-1439 GMD1us with CP interchange traffic and CN 79431 PSC van).
Thanks - this is the one I phoned you about, Loram Railgrinder... Silly me. Not much is known about the donor, for some of its sisters it's a GP38-2, others a SW1001. Way too much power either way, the consist is 6 IMS flats with ties followed by a similar looking cab car on a flat. The rear looks like it came off a F40PH to me. Incidentally the body is very reminiscent of BBD LRC's IMHO.
