    CP 6034 was on 454 at Minnidosa MB. was the 4th trailing unit, 6025-6054 were built in 1982-83.
  9. CPWX now CP

    CPWX now CP

    Lately both CN & CP have been taking the 'WX' out of the government owned hopper fleet, i.e. CPWX simply becomes CP as the patch on this hopper clearly shows. Of the 30 on this train I'd say about 1/4 were patched. Note the scorthed Earth in the foreground - result of grass fires.
  10. CP Molten Sulphur

    CP Molten Sulphur

    CN doesn't like to run molten Sulphur unit trains, preferring to stick a cut of 30-40 tankers on a manifest such as 346. Then again I have seen it once last year. The train was almost always parked @ CN's Fort Route yard (Winnipeg) when I railfanned there in 2003-05. This however is either...
  11. 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.
  12. 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...
  13. CP 5790 SD40-2

    CP 5790 SD40-2

    Just shy of his 30th birthday, this old SD40-2 got itself a new coat of paint! Since the rodent scheme is out, he's wearing the newest Ingenuity scheme, the #1 choice of CP ES44AC's. The only other SD40-2 I've seen in this livery was 5789 (coincidence?) a couple month ago on 542. Hopefully he...
  14. Cable barrels?

    Cable barrels?

    Quite a few of these loads coming through on CN & CP recently.
  15. CP 454-31

    CP 454-31

    CP 454 normally leaves Saskatoon around noon or 8pm. Today however he decided to go for 5:30pm, not a good time variance if you try to catch it like I do. The power is CP 5984-9111-5712, in three distinct CP paint shemes: Action red, beaver & dual-flags. It's odd that the units are all...
  16. CP 9008 SD40-2F

    CP 9008 SD40-2F

    I've always been a fan of SD40-2F's as they are unique for a number of reasons. For starters they are the last SD40-2's and the only locomotives on CP with a draper body, which is really a CN thing. Now I know that CP 9300 behind it is much more intersting, but I always enjoy seing a SD40-2F...
  17. CP 454

    CP 454

    CP 454 (E/B manifest+IMS, Sutherland-Winnipeg) is by far my favorite train on the CP PNL. Why? It fits my objective criterea: 1. Good timing, daily and always around noon 2. Good consist, lots of cars, a real good junk train - hoppers, gondolas, cente-beams, tankers, boxcars, platforms...
