  4. RIP? CN 5256 SD40-2W

    RIP? CN 5256 SD40-2W

    14 months after I captured her leading a top Intermodal train, she was retired - among the first to go in CN's SD40-2 purge. Sold to UK's Select Plant Hire along with four other SD40-2Ws, repainted and re-numbered at a US shortline shop before being shipped over-seas, presumably to...

  7. CN 102 11-4-15

    CN 102 11-4-15

    Nothing special about this train - very common at this time. Friend just asked for pictures, so I edited them.
  8. 103s shadow

    103s shadow

    Two ES44ACs lead 103 into downtown.
  9. CP 103 back on PNL

    CP 103 back on PNL

    CP 103 is back on the PNL, DPU naturally.
  10. Best friends?

    Best friends?

    Two long-time competitors, CN & CP ride together on CN Q102. Where are you competition bvureau? LOL.
  11. CN Rainbow

    CN Rainbow

    CN Rainbow Two Dash 9-44CWs, including a Canadian cab, still unpatched by CNs web address, lead Q107 through a rainstorm.
  12. Intermodal DPU

    Intermodal DPU

    CP uses DPU all the time on potash trains (except for 654), however in winter it's used on the Intermodals as well. With CN picking up DPU for manifests, hopefully this practise won't be limited to CP any longer (CN runs 7 IMS's through town vs. 1 on CP). 11:40am CP 103: CP 8768/8...
  13. CP 104

    CP 104

    CP 9630 and an un-indentified ES44AC lead 104 into the city. The train was parked actually. Not a particularly good idea, since the bridge over the river in the background is shared with pedestrians and they like climbing onto the tracks. PS. You can see an elevator in the background! That's...
  14. So long IMS!

    So long IMS!

    IMS has seen massive traffic growth in the last decade, yet CN is scrapping theirs! These aren't old ones either, all of 1992 vintage. While CP continues to use 'ancient' in comparison flats of 1970 BLT, I believe I've also seen a couple '68's in the mix. Note that they're all wearing safety...
  15. HEP power

    HEP power

    CP's AC4400CW fleet is not HEP equipped, thus this flat is used to provide power to the Holiday train. It has to be the best looking in the fleet - ironic since its one of the oldest, of '72 heritage. Lots of them still around in regular IMS service, probably the oldest IMS cars on any Class I...
  16. Kinda cold

    Kinda cold

    Two Dash 9-44CW's lead 107 across the bridge. No need to hurry as he's got plenty of work to do in the city.
  17. Morning IMS

    Morning IMS

    CN 104, with a pretty crappy consist, is leaving the city, with competition (CP 104 naturally) only a couples miles back. Note the web patch under the CN NA logo, first time I've seen CN squeze one under there! Oct 31 '07 9:11am CN 104?, 147 cars CN 2517-5722 (CN NA + web - web) 61...
  18. CN 313 Riverview

    CN 313 Riverview

    Until recently 313 was a regular manifest with a bit of everything. Now that the Prince Rupert terminal is open - there are boxes up front! The train proceeded to work Saskatoon yard for at least two hours. Great way to serve those Intermodal customers! Oct 31 '07 11:00am CN 313, 110 cars...
  19. Waiting for passage

    Waiting for passage

    A MOW crew waits next to their hi-rail, for a W/B IMS to pass before continuing work - unloading new ties for the mainline.
  20. Xena, SK

    Xena, SK

    CN Xena is a useless station sign, located @ MP 135.5 Watrous sub. There's no town, no siding, not even a farmhouse in sight. The closest town, Young, SK, is 8 miles away, with a population of 299. This train has the honour of being the worst IMS on the line. I always hear him coming into...
