  1. Last days of GMD's

    Last days of GMD's

    The SD40-2 era ended soon afterwards on CP (up to four units online in 2017 not counting re-builds from over 1,000 in the early 90s). The GP38-2s are still around, but with the influx of re-build GP9s pure sets are hard to find in Sutherland. The container terminal seen in the background closed...

    Hazardous waste, solid

    Looks pretty! Much better looking then those green garbage cans CSX hauls on the East Coast.

    'BN America' on CN

    I believe everything in this photos is now gone: CN 5232 - the last active SD40 on the roster was retired next year, going on the short line circuit, to Athabasca Northern, then Central Manitoba, now Prairie Rail Solutions. Area railfans believe it to be the last non-upgraded CN SD40 left with...

  14. Coal solo

    Coal solo

    Freshly washed CN SD40-2W leads an empty coal train solo. Sadly I didnt take car counts back then, this was a full unit train though at least 70 cars. Normally two Dash 9-44CW type engines handle the job. This is not an April Fool's joke, the train was actually spotted on April 1st.

  18. Tie unloader

    Tie unloader

    I've been looking forward to capture one of these, after seing photos of them on RRF for years. This gon is part of ~15 piece MOW set that includes gondolas loaded with ties, a BRANDT truck, tampers, tie cranes and more casual MOW equipement like hi-rail trucks. Sure is odd to see a yellow...
  19. Ties for sale?

    Ties for sale?

    Two MOW Service CP gondolas loaded with ties, way over their sides. I'm guessing these are new ties, since this tie unloader was one car away: http://tinyurl.com/3752k9 In comparison CN transports their ties on regular center-beams. Note that "CP Rail" and the numbers have been...
  20. 1937 CPR gondola

    1937 CPR gondola

    Lots of old junk comes through Sutherland in the form of MOW gondolas - I've seen 1950's and 40's build dates, but 1937 is a new record. My grandma was 1 years old when this thing was built, and its still rolling! Unlike the other MOW gondolas I've seen, this one is sadly not original paint...
