With a rather odd combination of power, CP 118 kicks up some winter dust as it glides through Ypres with CEFX 1032 and CP 2276. Having a clear to stop signal indication up ahead, it will pull into the siding at Baxter to wait for what I believe is 247. Since the rebuilds of the GP9u's into practically new GP20C-ECO's, CP has been fearless in using them on manifests and other long distance freights. It would not surprise me if the power remained intact from Edmonton. This may serve as a surprise, but this section is double track, and the only thing that gives that away is the switch stand about a 10th of a mile north, and the space between the mainline track and sign in the middle ground. Ypres was once a regularly used passing siding with signals, however it was decommissioned when the more advanced Baxter siding was built just south of it. It is now an infrequently used storage track, which last received use about three weeks ago.
