  7. Fill Em' Up

    Fill Em' Up

    The mainline fueling station is not a new concept. The BNSF has several of them. But the CP only has one. And they decided to put it in Moose Jaw, as it is said to be the center most point on the system, and I would imagine most Locomotives would be pretty thirsty after traveling the distance...
  8. CP DPU Service

    CP DPU Service

    It's a fact of life on the CP of today. Most every Intermodal traversing the Swift Current sub has a DPU of some sort. Some trains have their second unit cut in mid-train. CP 8837 is shoving on the rear of an Eastbound near Swift Current.
  9. DPU Service

  11. 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...
  12. 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...

  16. 40ft Ice boxcar

    40ft Ice boxcar

    Quite a relic, 40ft boxcar equiped for MOW services to take down ice in tunnels. Not sure what it was doing in Winnipeg, but it was ironically coupled right next to two 86' high cube autoparts boxcars. Compared to them it's so small!
