  3. CTRW 1006 working the yard

    CTRW 1006 working the yard

    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.
  4. CTRW Sisters in action

    CTRW Sisters in action

    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...
  5. Omnitrax


    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.
  6. Whitestar run

    Whitestar run

    Chased the train out to Whitestar north of PA to catch them picking up full grian hoppers. Just got off a night shift, was exausted, and it was freezing out.

    Nov 2008 switching in Prince Albert, two GP10s one in Okanagan Valley livery, these are the last operating units in Prince Albert.
  9. CTRW Prince Albert

    CTRW Prince Albert

    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...
  10. Carlton 771

    Carlton 771

    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...
  11. CTRW 1004

    CTRW 1004

    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...
  12. CTRW 1064

    CTRW 1064

    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...
  13. CTRW Saskatoon

    CTRW Saskatoon

    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...

    ICG GP-10 #8011, Chicago, Illinois, June 1978, photo by Chuck Zeiler

    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: "The...

    Fuel Tank

    Detail of Atlantic & Western GP10 #109
  16. Real Green Goat

    Real Green Goat

    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 is used to keep three other GP10's running. Even the headlights are gone, never mind bogies, fuel...
  17. Carolina Coastal

    Carolina Coastal

    It's not often you can get a railroad's entire roster in one shot! Carolina Coastal GP10 #486 is the lone unit on this North Carolina shortline.
