Back in the day this was GE's most popular 6-axle, offered in direct competition to EMD's SD40-2, making him a direct predecessor to todays GEVO. 600 units were made vs. 4,000 40s. Interstingly both UP & BN bought up a bulk of them, 150 vs. 686 & 180 vs. 779 respectively. UP...
This spur ran off CN Rivers sub into the Fort Garry Industrial Park #1. At its peak it had at least four spurs and siding, serving a variety of warehouses in the area. When I started railfanning in 2003, it was down to one spur and a siding, both lacking traffic. Not surprisingly by Spring 2005...

Once acquired it was painted as North Coast Lines
no.51 in Northern Pacific style and got involved in legal action because of the paint scheme. Spent
little time on the SNC before moving on...
The family was gathering in Bellingham for Mrs. NP1232's mom's birthday and it takes about 2 hours of riding ferrys and driving to get there. As we crossed over the BNSF Bellingham Sub just north of Burlington, the CN 5746 passed under. Because we were running on time, Mrs. NP1232 authorized a...
