Upon coming across this scene at Field many years ago, I am sure I said to myself "same old stuff" when I viewed this train in the yard with 4 SDs up front. As I look back and then think of what is powering CP out on the system now, I realize how much I miss these old engines. Attractive, really. It is just that there were so many of them..........In this photo you can see the corner of the station at Field at the extreme right, you can see the never-ending low cloud and fog that I take with me on my western travels, and you can see CP 5659, 5567, 5695 and 5729 all ready to be taken eastward. It mystifies me where you western guys find all that sunshine.
