  1. The Classics

    The Classics

    Old 40s 9531 and 5354 are in charge 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. Modern branchline

    Modern branchline

    As late as 1999 6-axle GMD1s still roamed the Prairies. Since then much of the trackage has been ripped up, 6-axle trucks exchanged for B-Bs and units limited to yard service Yeah right! Two GMD1us of 1959 vintage lead a newer GMD offering, 1999 SD75I. Theres a 40-year technological gap in...
  5. Hostile railfan

    Hostile railfan

    It is not unusual for the Clavet wayfreight to bring the resident railfan out. No its not me, Elijah or the visiting fan reading Branchline in his car. Last winter one of these guys tripped the Derailment Alarm ~MP 190 Watrous sub, causing at least half an hour worth of delays on the mainline...
  6. Second Hand News

    Second Hand News

    Let me down in the tall grass. The 520 is what ultimatley got me out of the house that day. The 107 was right behind him.
  7. So Very Alone

    So Very Alone

    This NAHX is the only one of it's kind in an otherwise solid block block of CN 388000 bathtubs.
  8. Home from work

    Home from work

    CN 520 apparently didn't have anything to bring back from Clavet, so he ran to the yard light. CN 4703 was on the point, with 4796 and 4782. And yet, no caboose!
  9. 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
