Sutherland West yard

You can see most of the yard from this vantage point. To the left, just outside of the photo is the car washing facility and to the right the shops. The snow plow is parked on the edge of the shop tracks. Note the container yard in the distance. That is the yard lead on the right.

If you look carefully you'll notice drifiting smoke, courtesy of CP 1501-1566, a GP7u-GP9u pair that used to work the West yard. They have since been replaced by other GP9u's in the 15xx-16xx series. Lately CP upgraded the West yard job to "trio power", that is three GP9u's work it now, indicating that there was not enough power prior.
