I always got a kick out of this
Title:  I always got a kick out of this
Description:  There were several NS trains that ran on CP south of Binghamton. One of them was 41T, an Enola-Toronto train that came up through CPs East Binghamton yard before gaining the NS Southern Tier Line at BD. It usually had CN power, and I loved the irony of the competitor using the same tracks. It was even better when 41T would run through as CP was getting one of their own trains out. Today is one of those days, as CP 419's power is moving onto the 1 runner from the north end of the shop, as 41T rolls its 75 cars through the yard behind a solid set of CN units.

Description:  Still polishing the rails, but for how much longer? This unit may stand a better chance than most of its siblings, it was just shopped at NRE on the 28th of Feb. But with CN, its hard to say if its going to be around.
