Weird. The photos keep repeating themselves. I am not going to try to delete the duplicates for fear of deleting them all. I have a few questions which I will post up tomorrow.

Thanks. Here are my questions.

CN 3260: Is it running long nose forward or is it the tailing unit in a rear DPU set? I ask because I seldom see three unit rear DPU sets pass through my town.

CN 3885: What does the 100 on the side signify?

CP 7051: Has the CP changed its shade of the red or is this just a unit that is cleaner than the ones in the other photos?

That's a NB running long nose forward. I can only assume they had power issues and that was the only unit available.

CN 3885:

CN's 100th year anniversary. Those are decals and will be coming off soon.

CP 7051:

That is one of the re-builds. CP had all their old SD90's updated as SD70ACu's.
As Per the Diesel Shop:


7000-7009Note S--Delivered, built from SD9043MACs
7010-7014Note S--Delivered in heritage paint with script lettering
7015-7019Note S--Delivered with heritage paint and serif lettering
7020-7024Note S--Delivered in military commemorative colors
7025-7029Note S--Delivery complete
7030-7060Note S--On order, with 7050 delivered so far
SD70ACUs are built from SD9043MACs

Thanks. I prefer the older, darker red of the CP, but time and paint schemes march on.
