CN 4800
Title:  CN 4800
Description:  Heading East pulling a string of autoracks out of the CN MacMillan yard. I was quite surprised when I saw these GP38-2s engines pull out on to the mainline for now it is mostly dominated by GEVOs. These days, The GP38s mostly work as high power switch/yard engines for they are superior to the GP9s. Anyway it was a treat to see these units run on the mainline.

CN 5645
Title:  CN 5645
Description:  CN 5645 leads a mixed freight consist into the CN MacMillan yard with the help of two different lease units one of which is a PRLX SD70Ace (1st trailing unit) and the second a former CSX C40-8 (3rd trailing unit). Note that despite being built about a decade later than the leading engine, PRLX 4834 certainly seems to show its age more than its predecessor the SD75I.
