Someones misusing DPU capability LOL. Half the train is in the tow, the other half will be lifted down the line to form a typical '1+2' potash train, i.e.:
Engine/62 hoppers/2 Engines/62 hoppers (119-125 hoppers in total)
Normally this is done by two AC4400CW's up front (1 unit waiting @...
After just 10 years of service the decaling is already faltering If UP takes over CP I cant see the power scene changing much, already UP & CEFX SD90MACs everywhere!

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).

Currently CPR has 1600+ locomotives, and this is the 2nd newest! Recently they have taken delivery of 140 ES44's (CP 8700-8839) and I'm proud to say that I've managed to catch the 2nd newest ones right here in Saskatoon, mid-train, third unit on a potash train. Too bad a 96xx was leading in...
Please do not confuse this with NREX SD40-2B's. Those are recently bought CP SD40-2's that have had the cab salvaged and B unit decals added, whereas this is the real deal. Back when CP started getting serious about locotrol, they decided to dedicated a batch of SD40-2 engines to the service. It...
Looks like a lone ES44AC leading a 124car unit potash train. Yet if you look carefully towards the back of the train you can see a blue blur in between the sea of Canpotax cars. That's two CEFX AC4400CW's working mid-train.
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...
