NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How long has it been? I say 2 of them 2 years ago. Do you know of they were resold to another company or if they got the cutters torch?

I'll link you to Mountain Railway.com: http://www.mountainrailway.com/CP%205000%20Page%201.htm ( click the blue # to bring up a picture. Note: it doesn't mark any unit as scrapped but if it isn't otherwise marked as such, usually assume the worst.)

Thank you so much FSD8014 for the link. That is extremely helpful. With regards to the Canadian Trackside Guide. I have seen it at Pacific Scale Rail. The problem is my birthday is coming up and my family want let me buy anything. I just have to put it on my birthday list and hope I get it.  . I found some pictures I've taken over the past 1-3 years of the 3000 and 5000 numbered locomotives. I'll have those later today.

Okay, then no more asking roster questions until after your birthday.

Thank you. I was so lucky I caught them. I was just sitting at the Port Moody Station when I heard them at a crossing across the bay. We drove down there. I hopped out of the car and bolted down the street as I could here the bell ringing as it came to the crossing. I was there no longer then 5 seconds when they appeared out of the bushes.

Yeah, great catch, Balto. I've always been fascinated with that spur to Ioco.

With the IoCo Spur. I remember when I was little, my brother use to play baseball right beside the tracks there. Every either Monday or Wednesday the train would go by. All the kids would run to the tracks long before the train was going to come. We would place coins on the tracks. Run back to the gane, watch the train race by blowing it's horn for the crossing. Then about five minutes after the train was gone we would go and try and fond are flat coins. Anyways, since I saw that train and remembered that they still use it. I'm going to try and see if I might be able to figure out when the train goes by. Well back to locomotive talk. I caught 3006 and 3008 in New Westminster.

About a month ago, I caught 3809 in the BNSF yard in New Westminster. I haven't seen it since. Does anyone know where it might have gone too?
