In an attempt to add a photo at least once a week, I thought I'd start with one from last year. Carlton Trail was just entering the Prince Albert yard with a load of grain, when the last three cars jumped the rails and carved a nice groove in the pavement. Several hundred feet of track had to be...
With 1006 back on the roster, CTRW has resorted to using her and her sister 1004 to do yard switching. When it comes time for a trip to S'toon, they'll incorporate 1064 into an odd CTR-OKAN-CTR lashup.
Carlton Trail units 1004 and 1006 back together after some time of being separated by Alberta and the mountains. 1006 comes from the now defunct Okanagan Valley Railway however is still painted in CTRW livery. Carlton trail's third unit bears the livery of the Okanagan line. This is the second...
As I was driving down 15th st I gazed upon the CTRW yards in Prince Albert and noticed this old girl sitting in the cold, with all her windows boarded up. Linked to the old Omnitrax GP9 which has sat outside for more than a year, it is a good guess these girls won't be in PA much longer. A few...
CTRW has had its roster completely shrunk down by the recent down turn in the economy. There is only two active locomotives at the Prince Albert Headquarters. A Central Kansas GP10 1064 and a Carlton trail GP10 1004. There are 4 other engines located in this yard 2 scrapped gp10's this GP9E and...
Taken in 1986 a year before my parents were married, and two years before I was born (I was the excuse for my father to get into model railroading). Information on the web said the engine was retired in 1989. This photo was taken by my father David Zulkoskey with permission to post on this site...
Long abandoned CP branchline from Nipawin to Prince Albert, originally serviced by RS23s from MLW. Abandoned over a decade ago, I was far too young to ever remember a train on this line. Many communities dot this old line, typically ten km apart, in order for farmers to carry their grain to the...
Old GP9 in storage outside, I guess they needed a third unit to rust outside. Not sure how long it's been in storage but it appeared last winter in the yards. This unit has long been part of the CTRW roster.
There I was, taking pictures of CTRW GP10's, when I happen to look the other way and see this ancient piece. Its in what appears to be a private construction lot (no rail acess), with a very old and beat-up scrapper up front. It's too bad CN #'s are patched out, otherwise we could trace its...
He's green, non-polluting and a GP9 derivative. Lots of room for batteries and a hybrid set-up in the back. Railpower, are you listening?
This unit, along with GWRX 1040 http://tinyurl.com/2zuxg7 is used to keep three other GP10's running. Even the headlights are gone, never mind bogies, fuel...
