    As late as 1999 6-axle GMD1s still roamed the Prairies. Since then much of the trackage has been ripped up, 6-axle trucks exchanged for B-Bs and units limited to yard service Yeah right! Two GMD1us of 1959 vintage lead a newer GMD offering, 1999 SD75I. Theres a 40-year technological gap in...

    My second run in with the CN 2225. He heads up the Cosco train from Prince Rupert. He was right behind 302, and he stopped at Riverview to wait for the block to clear. After that, he took off on the main to clear for the 357. 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.
