  1. Game over

    Game over

    A contracor takes away the ties of CN's Fort Garry Industrial Park #1 trackage. I haven't seen a train there ever since I started railfanning two years prior, so it's fair to say that not much has been lost. There weren't even any cars in the industrial park, not to mention 2/3's of the tracks...
  2. The junk of 114

    The junk of 114

    Thats the cool thing about CN 114. It always has the junk in the center of the train. Apparently, the first cut of IMS cars aswell as the junk are cut out at Winnepeg for the Fort Rouge and Symington terminals.
  3. Working on the RR

    Working on the RR

    CN pickup moving across the yard. Nothing special, it's a regular occurence, just happen to capture it.
  4. CN yard job

    CN yard job

    CN 7218 & 224, both GP9's, one a GP9RM, the other a slug, pulling a mixed freight into the yard. The pair then went on switching.
  5. CN meet

    CN meet

    CN 2594, Dash 9-44CW meets CN 5785. SD75I at the yards. Both are westbound intermodals.
  6. ANY 4009

    ANY 4009

    Athabasca Northern 4009, ex-CN GP9RM being foreign power on CEMR (another shortline), who operates more ex-CN GP9RM's - all on the CN mainline. Both shortlines are owned by CANDO, the locomotive was sandwitched in a triple GP9RM lash-up.
  7. 12 axle monster

    12 axle monster

    This 12 axle platform is just short of a load. I had to zoom out to fit it in! It was coupled next to a string of ballast hoppers and other flats. Oddly the one time I did see a loaded one on a IMS, there were no ballast hopeprs next to it. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
