Jacob Werling General Thst is a very good catch! Not only are the old tank cars and CP private car cool, but you don't really see GP9u units leading trains! Very cool photo! 3/25/2015 2:09:17 PM
Chris van der Heide General At the time GP9s were actually still common on minor local jobs. But the other equipment was a special relocation move. The old business car is owned by a private individual. 3/25/2015 2:19:42 PM
Jacob Werling General Oh okay. Thanks for the info Chris! I didn't know. Seen on main homepage 5/1/2015 5/1/2015 8:16:40 AM
Tom Beckett General It is an interesting consist. Perhaps in Canada you don't see GP9u's leading much-I think they're all retired by now anyway-but in the US, I used to see them on the D&H on a daily basis. CP in Binghamton had a group of them that ran on the D 22 locals every day. Some were painted STLH, too. Home page 06-24-2018 6/24/2018 3:09:48 AM
