  6. Almost Carlton Trail

    Almost Carlton Trail

    Identical sister units 2674, 2683, 2686 & 2687 were utilized on the Meadow Lake branch prior to its demise. I even spotted them on the HBR in the Pas this summer, but didn't bother getting #s down or taking pictures as I've already seen him & sister 2135 in Denver working on the UP.
  7. HBRY 2509 GP7

    HBRY 2509 GP7

    Note the evolution of the HBR paintsheme over the last decade. The frame stripes are now thicker, as well nose stripes are now white vs. lime on older units. CN & Omnitrax corporate paints present as well naturally.
  8. UP switchers

    UP switchers

    An old CN unit, former GTW 6417 leads a colorful lash-up. I caught his twin GTW 6425 along with a slug coming off the HBR in Winnipeg back in 2004: http://www.railroadforums.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=16215 The 15s aren't bad either. None of these engines are UP originals. From top to...

  14. HLCX 9647

    HLCX 9647

    After leaving CN in 2000, this unit is back on home turf! CTRW leassed five (???) of them, finally dispelling their ex-CN M420(W)'s to the HBR along with GP30's and other oddballs on roster. Despite CN retiring and selling these units left and right, they're perfect for a shortline like...
  15. 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...
