Welcome back Ron! Looking forward to seeing your photos. I’m sure you’ll keep the Midwestern section hopping.

CN 3263 in the first photo is a brand new ET44AC carrying the Aboriginal Affairs logo.
A wonderful group of photos. Well done! The yellow Progress Rail is cool.

Thanks for the link. I always like to know what my next door neighbor to the north is up to as CN and the occasional CP units pass through town on BNSF freights.

I like the new CN paint scheme without the map of North America on the side, which IMHO looked like graffiti or peeling paint. Call me a traditionalist (polite term for old man), but I wish they had left off the URL below the CN. I'm sure most people are capable of finding the railroad's website without it.

I find it a little strange that the cab roof is painted white, as that is usually the part of the engine that gets the dirtiest the quickest. Does anyone know if the Aboriginal Affairs logo is a permanent fixture for all CN engines or is it a temporary commemorative piece?

Hey Bill, been a long time.
As far as I can see, the Aboriginal Affairs logo is only on the 200 units CN ordered from @GETRANSPORT.
I assume the white roofs are keeping the cabs a lot cooler from the sun.
