CN 115 out of Dauphin, MB. was first train to be detour on the Togo Sub. with 157 cars. Units CN 2288, 8857, 5506 were handling 26 hopper cars,
2 boxcars, 17 tanker cars, 6 auto racks, 106 well cars. West
CN's primary choices- C44-9W, C40-8M, and ES44DC. It has been said that the CN ES44DCs are having engine problems...Perhapd Hunter Harrison can't understand the 'Quick start' environmental systems in the engines? I can see the CN 115 again, so it must be Spring now.
When I started taking pictures, people whined about the lighting, so I started shooting from the other side of the bridge. Now all I get is Sunset shots! It get OLD after awhile! You can't even tell what the paint looks like on these things!! The 115 sports a pair of unCanadian locomotives.
Something is wrong here. Why are there only 2 engines? The Toronto power shortage is becoming relevant to Saskatchewan operations. The trailing SD40-2 is IC repaint 6112, but that is no excuse for only 9 cars of mixed frieght, and half a train of baretables. I have high expectations for my 115...
As usual, the 115 comes in as the best catch of the night. Despite the fact that every train I caught had a Dash-9 on the point that night, this one is probably the best of them. CN C44-9W 2204 leads tonight.
Brand new EMD product, along with a twin, lead 115 into town. "Brand new EMD" doesn't sound right after almost a decade of new GE power and half-dead SD40-2W's on the mainline. If only these engines could make a similar comeback on the CP...
Although it's very said to see old units retired, you must admit the new ones look good!
With CN getting serious about DPU and getting more ES44AC's, they're no longer restricted to the East Coast, starting to show up all over.
Saskatoon's garbage hill is in the background. If you look...
CN 115, W/B manifest+Stack, Toronto-Calgary, is by far my favorite train on the CN Watrous line. It comes by around 7-8 oclock, but on a good day, it can make 6 oclock. Cool power, usually SD75Is, ES44DCs, or C44-9Ws. Lots of cool junk on the front, and a nice variety of Intermodals. 115 is...
Evidence as the 2 GEVOs heading up its eastbound counterpart. When 115 has 4 units, 2 return on 114, and the other 2 stay in Calgary. Alas, I missed 115 today. Anyway, this site alone is one to behold. CN ES44DCs 2220 and 2234 head up a late 114 on its trip to Toronto. Did I mention that I...
