CN 15016, Everybody's favorite rebuilt RDC inspection car, came to Riverview. While in the area the RDC was coincidentally assigned to cover the route of VIA 680, the oldtime RDC sevice from Regina to Prince Albert, making trips over the Warman, Watrous and Craik Subdivisions in proper fashion.
This is from sometime around 1972, and it looks to be taken at Riverview of all places! I found it as part of an old club roster at school. This seems to be running with an SD40, GP9, SW1200, and GMD-1...Consists musn't have been very uniform back then!

From MP 189.40 Watrous sub
12:25pm CN 402, 88 cars
Except for the SD50F, Dash 8-40CM & GP40-2LW, all of whom have fallen out of favour, nearly 35 years of CN mainline units are present...
CN SD40-2W 5250 and BCOL 4543 pull out of the Riverview siding after meeting counterpart CN 314. After the routine crew change and switch lining, CN 303 will take to the Warman sub. The CN 520, who is waiting on his heels, will then go back to the yards.

Happens to the best of us! Now that the CN 8800s are common as wheat out here, I can't say this train is 'special' or 'unusual'. But, the new power was just too cool. It's strange to see them on the 450.
4:10pm CN 357, 94 cars
CN 5682-5541-5433 (CN-zebra-zebra)
91 center-beams/3 autoracks
One of those draper's better be dead, as all the other trains I've seen on CN lately had two engines, yet this lumber empties gets a trio of pretty good power.
CN 630 tramp job (CN Industrial, MP 188) heads home with 5 cars, slowly following CN 347.
I used to see 1434 all the time in Winnipeg across the street @ Fort Garry Industrial Park/Manitoba Sugar site/Fort Rouge yard job. Now he has been...
