  10. HEP power

    HEP power

    CP's AC4400CW fleet is not HEP equipped, thus this flat is used to provide power to the Holiday train. It has to be the best looking in the fleet - ironic since its one of the oldest, of '72 heritage. Lots of them still around in regular IMS service, probably the oldest IMS cars on any Class I...

Odd that the container is promoting food, as it's not a reefer, more likely loaded with...
  14. CPR semi

    CPR semi

    Typical CPR semi-truck, I see them around town all the time hauling CPPU boxes on CPPZ trailers. You can see the trucker's feet under the truck, since he's on the other side inspecting the load. The crossbuck and Stop sign on the right, belong to the shop wye track, consists, including SD40-2...
