Coal train with a surprise
Title:  Coal train with a surprise
Description:  Many of the coal trains in this period ran with CP power, but sometimes NS would let a couple of units run through. The GP 38 was an oddity-almost all the NS power on these trains was 6 axle-but the stranger in town was a surprise, and CP tunnel motor.

Everything but the kitchen sink
Title:  Everything but the kitchen sink
Description:  The 1990s and into the new millenium was an interesting time for motive power on the CP. They acquired a lot of second hand power and rebuilt some units. This 271 at Belden tunnel is a case in point. The leader?? Used. CP never had any SD45s. The second unit is a rebuilt GP 9, the third unit is an ex MP SD40-2 that was originally one of their general service units and di not have dynamic brakes. CP added them while they were on lease from GATX, then bought them. The white SD40-2 is ex KCS. Quite a mix
