    Saskatoon Shines!

    With a looming power shortage CP has been getting interesting lately - bringing back the rainbow of colour. These are former CNW & Burlington Northern SD40-2s respectively.

    UP DPU

    Someones misusing DPU capability LOL. Half the train is in the tow, the other half will be lifted down the line to form a typical '1+2' potash train, i.e.: Engine/62 hoppers/2 Engines/62 hoppers (119-125 hoppers in total) Normally this is done by two AC4400CW's up front (1 unit waiting @...

    Worthy Warrior

    Former SP tunnel motor now relagated to being a lessor locomotive with CEFX on 11/20/05 at the 18th Street yard on the east end of the TP&W. She still looks good compared to the Dash 9 wide cab crap we have to endure today.
  15. Winter vocation

    Winter vocation

    CEFX 117 was relaxing in the South, along with other SD90MAC's in UP's massive fleet, when CP decided to leaase them again. That paint sure is hard to spot in the snow.
  16. CEFX 102+108

    CEFX 102+108

    Two CEFX SD90MAC's are about to take 104 to Winnipeg. Note the letters T.A. on the snow plow.
  17. Golden glow

    Golden glow

    CEFX 102 along with twin CEFX 108 lead CP 104 out of the yard onto the mainline. I cropped out the red switchstand, as not to disturb color. Not sure why there's a golden glow on the SD90MAC long-hood, as the sun is right behind him.
  18. CEFX SD90MAC horn

    CEFX SD90MAC horn

    10x zoom (380mm) plus 1:1 cropping equals this. That's ~1050mm equievelent. What do the paparazzi use? LOL.
  19. CEFX 104 SD90MAC

    CEFX 104 SD90MAC

    Now that CP is once again leasing CEFX SD90MAC's, they have become somewhat common, leading 454 solo in this case. Normally this is a SD40-2 trio train, with CEFX SD90MAC's appearing exclusively on potash trains once a month or so. CEFX sure didn't spend a fortune decalling this unit, aside...
