  1. I saw that very tank running Eastbound on the Grimsby sub this morning. Interesting design. Kind of caves in from the sides. Anyone know the builder/purpose. And a lot of other 40′ (ish) tanks too in the train. I’m getting my model back just to know what industry to bulid where I can spot it!

  2. Marcus, get your waders on and go for a walk in the river :)

  3. Damn, I just gave my little 40′ tank car to a friend that models the 70′s era.. Guess I should have held onto it.. Any Model Railroaders up here i’m sure would understand… :)

  4. I’m including a favourite with my comment Matt. I love the little white tank car just behind the engine. :-)

  5. @CNCNDR I understood HH wanted to send out trains and not have them waiting to fill up.

  6. Nice one Matt! CP always tried to cheap out and run those container trains (152/153/158/159) with one unit blunders all the time. But they soon found out after how bad things would go when it tied up the railway, shortly they would put an SD40-2 with it to keep things moving.

  7. Single unit, or was there a DPU?

  8. Nice work Matt! I didn’t know you could shoot from the north side there.
