For those who follow CP Rail and don't recognize the location, this is at Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton.  The Chicago - Pocono Summit, PA grain trains are usually run with CP runthrough power as a Delaware-Lackawanna RR train for the last 32 or so miles from Scranton to Pocono Summit.  A Cargill grain mill prepares the grain as flour for shipment by truck to various points on the east coast.

I saw one red barn in that two flag scheme a month or so ago and off all engine designs that I have seen that colour scheme on its probably the one that the least "right".  Maybe if they keep coming up with new schemes they will come up with one in maroon and grey   I have seen a great drawing of one in maroon and grey and it looked great.   Its good to see whats going on down south there.  Keep up the good work Steamfan.

CP likes to send some tired old units down to PA? Other then the SOO SD50, everything is 30+ years old.  Well they dont make em like they use to!

Was lucky enough to catch the CP grain train in Scranton a couple of years ago.

Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

Well, 5866 was built in 84, 6012 in 81, and 9000 in 88, so they aren't THAT old
