    Last days of GMD's

    The SD40-2 era ended soon afterwards on CP (up to four units online in 2017 not counting re-builds from over 1,000 in the early 90s). The GP38-2s are still around, but with the influx of re-build GP9s pure sets are hard to find in Sutherland. The container terminal seen in the background closed...

    Hagen vs. Kermit Crack

    This was taken about two weeks ago when me and a buddy ventured out to Hagen. I've been out there several times, but never managed to get any photos in. This is a magnificent spot for anyone interested in vintage elevators. The elevator still says "Use Pool Co-Op Flour"! This was the...

    Downtown Saskatoon

    Photo is self-explanatory - note the elevator centerpiece. Not that long ago two spurs run through, connecting CPs Sutherland sub with CNs Warman sub through the warehousing district (both now pulled up).
  12. Dalmeny, SK

    Dalmeny, SK

    At one time Dalmeny, SK was an important railway town located at the JCT of Canadian Northerns mainline (foreground) and a northward branchline. You can clearly see it just northwest of Saskatoon in this 1917 map: http://www.vanc.igs.net/~roughley/cnor_map.html Today however its just a dot on...

    CN 7269 Fresh paint

    Looks like Saskatoons main yard engine got some fresh paint in the cab area. Normally he operates exclusively in the main yard, which is largely inaccessible (recall http://tinyurl.com/69r8jh) however today he went out to lift some hoppers at the nearby elevator. Interestingly its located on CPs...
  14. Thunder Rail

    Thunder Rail

    Hard to believe I drove 200km to see this piece of junk. Im being sarcastic/common-sense of-course as I love it! This has to be one of the strangest units in Saskatchewan: M420R(W) ex-Maine Coast originally P&W via NREX, always #2004. The story I hear with these units is that MLW sold them...
