UP 707
Title:  UP 707
Description:  A decent mix of power is seen from the parking lot at SSP. With the invasion of SD70M's, the SD40-2's are pretty scarce now. There was only one here, a 37XX.

Old CGW
Title:  Old CGW
Description:  The CGW remnants are here, but the UP influence is quite obvious (well, what do ya expect?) too. Two GP38-2's wait for a few more minutes, and will soon take their train to SSP. It sounded quite nice hearing two 38's buck and grind to get moving, reminiscent of CGW F's?

Title:  MRL 265

HLCX 6081
Title:  HLCX 6081
Description:  Well, let me just say that I never thought I'd get a chance to shoot one of these, especially after the economy took a nose-dive. Well, thanks to the INRD switching up the coke train power, a pair of Helms sit shutdown after bringing in 891 earlier in the day.

What is this, CSX in 2005?
Title:  What is this, CSX in 2005?
Description:  Well, despite how it looks, this is the power of the CP's 891 train from the INRD. Traveling from Terre Haute, IN to Roseport, MN , these units take a rest behind some trees near the refinery. I would not suggest coming to this spot, unless your itching for a possible terrorist investigation!

No stranger
Title:  No stranger
Description:  A shame about the touch up paint, but still a nice lookin former CNW SD60! This engine is definately familiar with the former CNW lines around here, being the CNW's # 8032 years ago. The INRD is currently leasing a few HLCX's, and these two found their ways to the CP on a Coke train.

Description:  A newer SD50-3 trails the older GEVO (Never thought I would say that!) on this coke train near the refinery. It was a long hike through the deep snow, and I thought for sure to be surrounded by security and police on my way back to the car. No such luck though!

The CEFX 3138 is back to work for its original lessee, and for now three out of these four units will be trail only and/or isolated due to being bad ordered. The 3138 still looks good though!
