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.
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...

CN 104, with a pretty crappy consist, is leaving the city, with competition (CP 104 naturally) only a couples miles back.

Not sure why there's a golden glow on the SD90MAC long-hood, as the sun is right behind him.
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...

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...
