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...
CN 560 departs to work the Poatsh mines with GP38 units 4782, 4798, and 4703. 3 Geeps is alot for 23 cars, so they will probably be lifting alot of Potash. But before they can get underway, they will have to hold for the westbound CN 303. The paint on 4782 looks to be in better condition then...

CN 4792 leads the daily wayfreight along with a GP38-2.
No, you are not seing double, CN has actually patched itself on the Geep's back, in a slightly smaller font. What a waste of time and resources!
(CN was owned by the government then, hence its our money...)
After leaving the Maritimes I was worried about not seing CN GP38-2's again, since this is widecab country after all. Thankfully CN has proven me wrong by replacing two GP38-2W's on the local wayfreight, with two GP38-2's. Don't really like the latest replacement though: SD75I+SD50F - just not...
