Spotted 1688 a very faded Action Red gp but did a double take when I noticed it had never had dynamic brakes.  I checked ye olde trackside guide and found this beasty was a long way from home.  She started life as a Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo unit.  Its amazing how a little thing like the d/b's not being on it make it stand out.  Being from the land of d/b's she is an oddity, and nice to see for a change.

Yeah--didn't that unit work the Vancouver yards at one time (like 1999-2000)?  I know we used to have an old TH&B unit without d/b out here.
