The STL&H Lives!More than twenty years ago when Canadian Pacific was in a financial situation that was far more detrimental than it is today, the Saint Lawrence & Hudson was created to help guide the company away from it's woes. In the process, 32 of Canadian Pacific's locomotives received fresh STL&H paint. One of these locomotives was 1972 built SD40-2 # 5651, which on April 16th 1997 received a complete overhaul and repaint at Calgary's Ogden Shops. Surviving more than twenty years on the road despite the dissolution of the STL&H in 2001, 5651 stills earns it's keep for CP today. This morning, I was surprised when I received a timely text from a good friend that 5651 was leading train # 142, CP's Chicago-Montreal hotshot. After receiving a series of clearances and a pusher set complimentary of Kinnear Yard, 5651 is finally on the move (if ever so slowly) with fellow SD40-2 # 5926. As the aging duo of power grinds up the Hamilton Subdivision, they catch a nice patch of morning sunlight just north of Desjardins. It would be a long journey to Guelph Junction.
