A rather clipped pic of CP 4436 GP38-2 helping on a mixed train 1 mile east of Grenfell, SK.  Eastbound, the train had just scooped some loaded grain cars in town.
 
Note the 4400 series number and lack of dynamic brakes.

Nice shots as always, Kjohn.

Great shot, CPR. Having worked on a railtrain before, I notice the unloading and pick up cars are not attached, indicating the rail is in long distance transit. What is the car on the end of the train if I may ask? It's hard to make out, thought it may have been a wide vision caboose in MW service, which wouldn't make sense to be in transit without the rest of the worktrain.

Very nice indeed!  I remember a rail train blasting through my home town back in the late 70s or very early 80``s, with an FP7A and F7B for power.  Luckily, I was right at the track gathering firewood scraps at a new elevator site.  Oh, those were the days!
 
A friend who worked at the bunkhouse at Broadview said the engineer often had trouble getting started with a rail train, as there is very little slack.  It is basically a 1/4 mile multi-axle car.

Thanks for the comments, guys.
Here is a blow-up of the tail end...looks like a specialized caboose, as you guessed.

Nice photos, everyone.
Here's a blast from the past (1995) west of Corning, NY, on Conrail's Southerntier line, former D&H trackage rights.  Four SD40s on a westbound stack train: GATX 7370, CP 5429 (originally MP 3194), CP 5413, and GATX 7361.
(edit; thanks for keeping me honest)
BTW, I notice the CN picked up ex-MP SD40's without dynamic brake, CP picked up ex-MP SD40's with dynamic brake, example here.
