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...
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.
Whenever I go to Prince Albert to catch CTRW action I see nothing! But railfan the CN mainline at Chappelle JCT in Saskatoon and look what the cat dragged in. Sure looks like the backwoods of Prince Albert though, had I stood on the other side the city skyline would instead form the background...
When I heard chatter about 771 on the radio, I thought they meant the Symington coal was going into the yard eastbound. It was actually the CTRW 771- 2 GP10s and a CN Boxcar, coming off the Warman lead. Note the rear of CN 450, which was passing my person at the time, and was center of my...
CTRW 1004, a typical CTRW GP10 is leading CTRW 772 back home. Ok not yet, first he needs to come down to Saskatoon and get his train, but then he'll be leading N/B all the way to Prince Albert. Note the unusual headlight arrangement on sister 1064 behind him, sort of like a rally car...
Most of this units OMNITRAX history can be seen through the paint. Can you tell it's a CTRW unit? Originally IC 9115, this GP10 has since served for Missisipi & Gulf, Mid South, Carlton Trail, Okanagan and GWRX Railroads!
After a short stint on the CTRW in 1998, he came back in 2001...
Originally Carlton Trail was powered by ex-CN M420W's and a couple BCOL's (including a B unit!) thrown into the mix. Up to six would be put on a grain train to struggle through the hilly terrain (Northern SK is not like South SK). Today HBR and other shortlines took all the MLW's away, leaving...
Illinois Central Gulf GP-10 #8011, near 22nd St., Chicago, Illinois, June 1978, photo by Chuck Zeiler. There's a mystery piece of track work, it once connected to Dearborn Street Station in Chicago. Per comment below by beal99, and I have no reason doubt the facts as presented:
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...
