CN SD70I & BCOL Dash 8-40CM get fuelled at Walker shops. Note the twisty rail in the foreground. Id probably be shot for taking a similar photo at the Saskatoon shops (recall http://tinyurl.com/69r8jh) side street access makes all the difference in Edmonton.
The mainline fueling station is not a new concept. The BNSF has several of them. But the CP only has one. And they decided to put it in Moose Jaw, as it is said to be the center most point on the system, and I would imagine most Locomotives would be pretty thirsty after traveling the distance...
My first 8800, CP 8831 is the third unit, behind two AC4400CW, getting fueled after coming home as a light power move from a potash mine. Sure don't look like your typical gas station!
The green John Deer tractor/golf cart you see on the side is used to move around the shops. As well, note...
The NS F Units F9A 4270, F7B 4276, F7B 4275, and GP38-2 5648, stopped shortly at Linwood for servicing before continuing to Augusta, Ga. In the early AM hours of 3/30/07. Cab shots and Ground shots of the units. All photos taken with permission.
What we have here is the bell, some fuel lines and the usual rust. Not bad for an ex-Conrail Geep, currently lettered LLPX and working for CBNS.
The photo was taken from a street which leads into the station, which is now a museum, so no trespassing.
