  2. NS Dash 9-40CW

    NS Dash 9-40CW

    NS 9032 is trailing CN 5749 & 9433 on 304? This was my first foreign power sighting.
  3. SOO grain train on PNL

    SOO grain train on PNL

    Two SOO SD60s lead a CP SD40-2 B unit on a grain train off the PNL. To compare, todays 344 has an AC4400CW leading and trailing in DPU mode yuck! Sadly all these engines are off roster now: SOO 6014 - off long-term lease, to CIT Group (CEFX lessor) in 2006 SOO 6009 off long-term lease, to...

  6. CN 655-01

    CN 655-01

    Kind of looks like a European diesel, complete with a funky headlight! Aside from cranes & Rail grinders, still the biggest MOW single piece Ive seen to date. Note the two arrows on the body, indicating where the front is? Be odd to see that on locomotive frames instead of the usual F, R...
