  1. CN Scale Test Car

    CN Scale Test Car

    Caught him a while back. Sorry that the photo is so small, had I known such small cars existed (it's a cut-down hopper), I would of zoomed in more then I ussually do. He caught me completely off-guard, right between regular stuff.
  2. Branchline daily

    Branchline daily

    CN 5370 leads the branchline grain train, consisting mostly of fallen flag hoppers and Government of Canada cars.
  3. Last Canadian Safety cab

    Last Canadian Safety cab

    More then 30 years ago CN invented the Canadian Safety cab, which has created such oddballs such as the GP40-2L(W), SD40-2(W) and the GP38-2(W) that don't look even close to their regular versions. Don't forget that draper tapers, namely Dash 8-40CM, SD50F, SD50AF and SD60F have this cab as...
  4. CN's one unit wonder

    CN's one unit wonder

    While one unit wonders are fairly common on CP, they're rare on CN. When they happen though, it's ussually with a SD40-2/SD40-2(W) or a Dash 9-44CW for power, not a draper taper! CN 5522, SD60F, leads a mixed train which had some new hoppers on it. You can also see "Portage JCT" in...
  5. CN 5522

    CN 5522

    This SD60F lead a mixed solo - all by itself. Ussually 2-3 units lead trains on the CN mainline.
  6. CN 5325 & 2643

    CN 5325 & 2643

    CN 2643 & CN 5325 lead a westbound intermodal on the mainline.

    CN 2643 & CN 5325 lead a westbound intermodal on the mainline.
  8. Working all year round

    Working all year round

    CN crew works in winter and spring. If you look really carefuly, you'll notice that the slugs are different. In the top photo it's YBU-4, in the bottom one it's a S-3. Most often it's a GP9 slug though. The power is always GP9RM. CN 7213 & 203 CN 7251 & 268
  9. CN 2727 leading

    CN 2727 leading

    CN 2727 (2005 Dash 9-44CW, rebuild CN 2667) & BC Rail 763 (SD40-2) lead a westbound intermodal on the mainline.
  10. Odd couple

    Odd couple

    CN 2727 (2005 Dash 9-44CW, rebuild CN 2667) & BC Rail 763 (SD40-2) lead an intemrodal, as they perform switching before heading out west. You can see the mainline in the backround.
  11. City pair

    City pair

    CN 2727 (2005 Dash 9-44CW, rebuild CN 2667) & BC Rail 763 (SD40-2) lead a westbound intemrodal on the mainline.
  12. GCFX 6072

    GCFX 6072

    50 SD40-3's just like this one (rebuilt CN SD40's) have been around CN for a while now. But recently they've been all bought back by CN and are being patched up and renumberedas WC. Most are still in the GCFX sheme though.
  13. BC Rail 4624

    BC Rail 4624

    BC Rail Dash 8-40CMu's are now the most common foreign power on CN. It used to be GCFX/WC SD40-3's. Oddly it was trailing a CN Dash 8-40CM.
  14. Made in 2005

    Made in 2005

    CN 2727, Dash 9-44CW, rebuild CN 2667, is just two weeks old here.
  15. BC Rail 763

    BC Rail 763

    BC Rail 763, SD40-2, trailing CN 2727 on a westbound intermodal.
  16. BC Rail SD40-2

    BC Rail SD40-2

    BC Rail 763 looks fine no matter where it goes.

    CN logo

    What looks like a SD70I/SD75I is on many CN containers, being a one unit wonder pulling an intermodal.
  18. Wheels...

    Wheels...

    Living in a major RR hub both for CN, CP & VIA, I see wheel movements quite often, ussually they're on platforms that are on mixed trains. CN however occasionally put them up on intermodals as in this case.
  19. CN Dash 9-44CW

    CN Dash 9-44CW

    After seing more then 60 of these, I finally got a roster that I'm happy with. Leading a BC Rail SD40-2 helped.
  20. BC Rail 750 (SD40-2)

    BC Rail 750 (SD40-2)

    Until recently these units could only be found in BC or as lessors, when BC Rail sold them. Now CN runs them on Intermodals!
