Word was on the street in 2011 that CP was going to overhaul their SD60 fleet, although northwestern Ontario has never been a hot bed for SOO locomotives you wouldn't know it in this shot. A b/o (bad order) train line forced the crew on the previous nights 420 to setoff the unit (SOO 6045) in the yard while in the back ground a "rock train" from Dyment Pit loaded with ballast for a work program somewhere on the CP system sits at the east end of BMB6 awaiting a crew to take it back west with SOO SD60 6046 - SOO SD60 6043 - CP SD40-2 6024. All three SD60's in this shot have gone through the "program" and are respectively CP 6245, CP 6246 and CP 6243.
