These three were sitting just west of Bienfait.  They must have been idling all night, as the stink of half burned diesel was overwhelming!  The wind was blowing just right so that the south half of Bienfait got to enjoy the smell as well!
 
The pic is even foggy!  February 24, 2011

I have only been able to catch two CP consists this year, the first of which was truly a gem. Soo power always looks good, even when you're on the wrong side of the sun

Found these three nice clean units sitting westbound a few miles east of Bienfait, SK.  They were stuck behind another westbound that had timed out.
Both people in the lead engine were very young.  April 20, 2011

Big GM waits for a meet at Grenfell, June 2011.  Just picked up a few gons loaded with used ties destined for the US, to be burned.

So when was the last time you saw a train with four SD40-2s and a caboose at the Spiral Tunnels?  OK, so it was a ten-car ballast train, but it was still a cool catch.  Aug 16 at the west end of Cathedral siding.

A lot of the old heads have retired and the RR's are scrambling to hire new guys. Lots of young guys on the railroad these days, myself included. 27 years old and I'm already a locomotive engineer.
