Caught this train sitting on the main, facing east, a mile east of Grenfell, SK.  The old Geep sure did look good.  Sounded good, too.

Interesting to note what appears to be a vid cam over the bell.  I saw this the other day in Calgary.  Good catch.

Good to see GP9's back on the inspection train..they had started using newer power. 8217-8218 used to be assigned.

You're right, that is a video camera over the bell.  Used for the Engineering Services employees in the rear car, not sure exactly what it's for but they do have screens in the back and you can see where you're going.
