  1. Running Long

    Running Long

    CN 4782 has CN 9531 to assist today. I'm sure the crews will jam a GMD-1 in again one of these days. He called himself the 560, but he got his track warrant as the 520. Lot more to the train today.
  2. Later still...

    Later still...

    It's not as strange as 2 GMD1s pulling an SD75, but apparently the GMD1s aren't finished their tour of duty on the CN 520. CN 1410 leads today.
  3. Passing the torch

    Passing the torch

    Once again 520 is short on power, hence the tramp power leading. Still no ditchlights, three zebras look right though. The GP38-2s trailing have the dubious distinction of wiping the GMD1 herd off the roster, as the preferred power of choice on the branchline. Nearly every Prairie branchline is...
  4. CN GP38-2 Quad

    CN GP38-2 Quad

    A common sight on CP (Ive seen 5 together) much rarer on CN. The lash-up will likely be cut in half @ shops to form two roadswitcher pairs. 4794 was in North Battleford working solo two weeks ago, no doubt brought in so the crews dont need to use the GMD1u yard power. Note that 4794 is in...
  5. CN 4782

    CN 4782

    Since last May, CN 4782 has become a common face in the Saskatoon road switcher pool. Today he holds his post alone, with special guest ES44DC 2257. His usual associate CN 4798 is out pulling up track somewhere, and 4703 went somewhere east.
  6. The Odd Couple

    The Odd Couple

    You don't see a power arrangement like this every day. The train only had 28 cars. I'll bet the 548 nabbed the rest of the local pool.
  7. Looking for work

    Looking for work

    Local units 4796 and 4782 had nothing left to do, and began to wander the yards. Atleast thats what they said. They were later sent to do work on the Rosetown sub.
  8. CN 4796

    CN 4796

    Freshly painted GP38-2W leads a trio of GP38-2's home on a wayfreight. Don't be fooled by the rosy picture, I've cropped out 4703's primer color cab for a reason. 4:09pm CN 520 (W/B) 1 minute CN 4796-4782-4703 9 hoppers/11 tankers/34 hoppers
