  1. Return of the Railiner

    Return of the Railiner

    It's been 28 years since CN Railiners have come through on the Warman sub, following VIA's big cuts of 1981. A real shame, considering that Saskatoon had the most assigned CN RDCs back when the service first started (7 units!). Old RDC-1 D-108 (turned VIA 6108) came back however in the form of...
  2. CTRW Prince Albert

    CTRW Prince Albert

    Whenever I go to Prince Albert to catch CTRW action I see nothing! But railfan the CN mainline at Chappelle JCT in Saskatoon and look what the cat dragged in. Sure looks like the backwoods of Prince Albert though, had I stood on the other side the city skyline would instead form the background...
  3. Carlton 771

    Carlton 771

    When I heard chatter about 771 on the radio, I thought they meant the Symington coal was going into the yard eastbound. It was actually the CTRW 771- 2 GP10s and a CN Boxcar, coming off the Warman lead. Note the rear of CN 450, which was passing my person at the time, and was center of my...
  4. CTRW 1064

    CTRW 1064

    Most of this units OMNITRAX history can be seen through the paint. Can you tell it's a CTRW unit? Originally IC 9115, this GP10 has since served for Missisipi & Gulf, Mid South, Carlton Trail, Okanagan and GWRX Railroads! After a short stint on the CTRW in 1998, he came back in 2001...
  5. CTRW Saskatoon

    CTRW Saskatoon

    Originally Carlton Trail was powered by ex-CN M420W's and a couple BCOL's (including a B unit!) thrown into the mix. Up to six would be put on a grain train to struggle through the hilly terrain (Northern SK is not like South SK). Today HBR and other shortlines took all the MLW's away, leaving...

    Interior shot of Windy Pt Tunnel

    Interior shot of the Windy Pt Tunnel looking to the east from the west portal. You can see the old grade on the right. This tunnel was built in 1913 and enlarged the following year for double tracks but was never used as such. It was abandoned in 1929 and is now apart of the Iron Goat Trail...
  8. Inside the Original Cascade Tunnel

    Inside the Original Cascade Tunnel

    Inside shot of the Original Cascade Tunnel located on Stevens Pass, Wa. This tunnel built in 1900 by the Great Northern Railway is now apart of the Iron Goat Trail and at 2.6 miles long, it is the longest tunnel on a hiking trail system in the US.
  9. A Trail Runs Through It

    A Trail Runs Through It

    The view is from the cab as Ballard Terminal Railroad #98 waits for cross-traffic. A forklift breaks from loading operations to remove a sound barrier that is blocking the tracks. The City of Seattle plans to run a bicycle trail through here. My kids won't be allowed to play here.
