    BNSF GE smokin' it up!!!!

    BNSF #4915 accelerates just west of Stevenson siding after meeting an eastbound.. This was a rare day that the sun was out and the trains were actually moving on the BNSF Fallbridge Subdivision.. To show on a nice spring day, snow is still in the hills in the background of the 4915 on the...

    CN coal?

    Ex-Southern & Burlington Northern (both fallen flags) coal hoppers roll under CNs banner. Theres also a large chunk of ex-CP ones in the fleet on unit trains. Note the bent structure on the CNA (ex-SOU) hopper.
  11. Lifting CN Watrous sub

    Lifting CN Watrous sub

    Its early morning - crews work hard to replace the switch off the Watrous sub onto the Warman sub (PNL route). As you can see clearly in the photo, the mainline is split. I think they installed an automatic turnout, so that CN 303/314 dont need to bother the yard and take a good half hour away...

    CN 402 = Big power

    June 13th, 2008 From MP 189.40 Watrous sub 12:25pm CN 402, 88 cars CN 2307-8008-5610-5257-2616-5511 ES44DC/SD70M-2/SD70I/SD40-2W/Dash 9-44CW/SD60F Except for the SD50F, Dash 8-40CM & GP40-2LW, all of whom have fallen out of favour, nearly 35 years of CN mainline units are present...
  13. CN 4765 GP38-2W

    CN 4765 GP38-2W

    Not long ago 4765 looked like 4784 behind him. Interestingly hes missing the CN sub-lettering & web address. Ive seen an ES44DC missing the web address as well looks like CN puts them in service ASAP, with the decaling arriving later.
  14. R.I.P. Fort Garry spur

    R.I.P. Fort Garry spur

    This spur ran off CN Rivers sub into the Fort Garry Industrial Park #1. At its peak it had at least four spurs and siding, serving a variety of warehouses in the area. When I started railfanning in 2003, it was down to one spur and a siding, both lacking traffic. Not surprisingly by Spring 2005...

    WC GP38-2

    Ever since CN took over BC Rail and retired their RS18CAT fleet, WC GP38-2s had been heading west to feel the void. This one is heading back east however! I was suppose to catch it last winter on 357, but caught a blue-bird GT GP38-2 instead An ACR Geep ain't bad either - hard to believe they...

    Early morning, a Loram Rail grinder grinds CN Newcross. Is it me, or does the back look like an old subway body?

    Best friends?

    Two long-time competitors, CN & CP ride together on CN Q102. Where are you competition bvureau? LOL.
  19. Passing the torch

    Passing the torch

    Once again 520 is short on power, hence the tramp power leading. Still no ditchlights, three zebras look right though. The GP38-2s trailing have the dubious distinction of wiping the GMD1 herd off the roster, as the preferred power of choice on the branchline. Nearly every Prairie branchline is...
  20. Reading & Northern

    Reading & Northern

    These coal hoppers have been showing up on CN through town since at least June 14th, 2008. Odd, since they have an interchange with CP. Clearly they didnt think the slogan through, as Reading & Northern is a US shortline, while I keep seeing them in Canada. Although hard to see in the...
