    CP 3716-G2 is pulling two 456/457 series CP ballast hoppers 300 feet, where ballasting a new set of tracks is needed. Oddly I never noticed a coupler on the back of a hi-rail before... Note the old decal on the door, CP is still promoting their SD40-2 action red fleet today - to NREX and other...
  9. "Newer" CN crew-cab

    "Newer" CN crew-cab

    I'm using "newer", since there's an even newer IH cab design available. It's good to compare to the classic IH truck look. This truck is parked at CN's Portage JCT MOW shops, I've only seen him there once, unlike other trucks and MOW equipment (i.e CN 665-05...
  10. CN's smallest truck?

    CN's smallest truck?

    The majority of CN trucks (not pick-ups) are of the 6axle heavy-duty variety. Then there's this guy who has a relatively short wheelbase and is based on an IH chassis! I'm suprised CN didn't utilize a Ford F350 for this purpose... You can see a bit of CN's mainline in the background - right...

  17. CN hi-rail dump truck

    CN hi-rail dump truck

    A typical CN hi-rail dump truck - comes in a black or red liverie. Looks like an old IH model. I've only seen it once so don't know much else about it. I know CN has contractors to remove snow off the property do what they need a dump truck for is a mystery to me.
