Greenwood MS - May 2015
Soo Tower a few years ago on a CP eastbound grain train:
Very early in the AM - Greenwood MS - Feb 2012
Cold rainy day in February 2010. Rosenberg, Texas.
A Wet Noodle leads a more typical CP unit at mp 497 on the CP Portal Sub, west of Carpio, ND:
GP9 at Surrey yard outside Vancouver, British Columbia. September 2014.
Two older paint jobs parked in Surrey Yard back in 2014. I think the one on the SD40-2W is called a "Map" but don't know what the one on the C40-8 was called.
Found a CN cowl unit in Everett, WA this morning, on the head-end of an Oil train.
Missing the "N" though...
CN 5620 leads a Northgate-Minot grain load on the Crosby Sub, in an extremely rare movement with a CN unit on the Northgate Branch, crossing the trestle at MP 15.1 near Aurelia, ND:
Does anyone know what the green spot behind the cab is?
I figured it had something to do with the air filters. Maybe a notice to maintenance about type or cleaning schedule. They have a strange symbol on the battery box cover too. And the fire extinguisher is well labeled. I think the row of class lights above the number boards above the windshield are cool too.
It "fell off" at least 20 years ago: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=3085250
And the engineers side didn't look much better: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=443779
Looks like cowls can be toasted too
Wow, probably will never see a paintbooth either. Dang, if a cowl unit gets toasted like a hood unit, is it confined to the inside?
Westbound stacker in Minot. On a side note, why does it look like someone dumped a bucket of some dark liquid out of the cab window? My money's not on coffee...
Either that, or hopefully someone wasn't hanging out the window when whatever that is rained down on it!
Along the Frasier River in British Columbia. A west bound heading down river.
Beautiful place, wow!!
I shot by chance this pair of units in downtown Montreal, QC, in April 2019. I wasn't even railfanning as I thought this line was only used at night..
