    The new SD70M-2 units have made their presence known out west, and CN 8865 is now off to tell the French folks at Taschereau!
  6. CN 104

    CN 104

    Here is a prime example of what was on the menu, one June 9th, 2008. Every train a stacker, every locomotive a Dash-9. I like to call it "InterModal Monday". The 104 prepares to take the hole on its way east back to Taschereau.
  7. CP 104

    CP 104

    CP 9630 and an un-indentified ES44AC lead 104 into the city. The train was parked actually. Not a particularly good idea, since the bridge over the river in the background is shared with pedestrians and they like climbing onto the tracks. PS. You can see an elevator in the background! That's...

  11. Morning IMS

    Morning IMS

    CN 104, with a pretty crappy consist, is leaving the city, with competition (CP 104 naturally) only a couples miles back. Note the web patch under the CN NA logo, first time I've seen CN squeze one under there! Oct 31 '07 9:11am CN 104?, 147 cars CN 2517-5722 (CN NA + web - web) 61...
  12. CEFX 102+108

    CEFX 102+108

    Two CEFX SD90MAC's are about to take 104 to Winnipeg. Note the letters T.A. on the snow plow.
  13. Golden glow

    Golden glow

    CEFX 102 along with twin CEFX 108 lead CP 104 out of the yard onto the mainline. I cropped out the red switchstand, as not to disturb color. Not sure why there's a golden glow on the SD90MAC long-hood, as the sun is right behind him.
  14. CEFX SD90MAC horn

    CEFX SD90MAC horn

    10x zoom (380mm) plus 1:1 cropping equals this. That's ~1050mm equievelent. What do the paparazzi use? LOL.
  15. CEFX 104 SD90MAC

    CEFX 104 SD90MAC

    Now that CP is once again leasing CEFX SD90MAC's, they have become somewhat common, leading 454 solo in this case. Normally this is a SD40-2 trio train, with CEFX SD90MAC's appearing exclusively on potash trains once a month or so. CEFX sure didn't spend a fortune decalling this unit, aside...
  16. "The king"

    "The king"

    CP 9303 is the biggest engine CP has at 6000hp. CN's got nothing that's even close. The four engines are anything but problematic however - this winter during a traffic down-turn CP chose to store them in favor of running old soon-to-be-retired SD40-2's! That's how much they don't like them, and...
  17. Santa Fe GP60M 104

    Santa Fe GP60M 104

    Its nice seeing GP60Ms, but seeing three Santa Fe warbonnet GP60Ms on a stack train is unheard of! 104 is the lead GP60M on this train.
