Here's a couple from last Saturday. What a gorgeous spring day we had!

Late to the party. Bit of an interesting one, pair of CN yard switcher GP9RM's out on the road pulling a Belleville-Toronto freight. Not too fast up the hills and the leader caught fire close to Mac Yard!

Oops. Even EMDs can catch fire, I guess. :D

Doesn't a pair of GP9's pulling double-stacks seem a little incongruous? There's, oh, about 50 years of separation between the technologies. I know that UP once assigned the 3985 to a stack train for drawbar testing, but the anachronism was clearly intentional.

Likely three toasters on the point plus a single DPU - 17K HP or so.

Those two are relatively new GP9's, being built in 1958 and 1959  :trollface:

They did it again today, but in reverse. A 570 left Mac Yard (Toronto) for Belleville with a pair of GP9RM's, CN 7075 and 4110, the former being a yard switcher and the latter being a road switcher. Short train and they would seems to be the fastest power on CN. I barely managed to keep up with them as I chased as far east as Trenton, ON. A fine sight and sound!
