I shot the 4614 on May 28th heading to Calgary. I'm not sure if it has returned back to Edmonton in the last week but here it is returning today as a barn special. That is the 2402 trailing. The crew is waiting for the Wainwright Sub. to clear. A freight and then the passenger train zipped by and they were next in line to proceed to Walker yard. While taking my photo, the engineer came out to chat. A very nice fellow, he was laughing about how busy it is and the number of lease engines being used. Speaking of engines, the 4614 looks in rough shape but you should have heard the 2402. It sounded like just sitting and idling was to big of a job for it.  Photo taken @ 9:30.

  1. I can see. At least I know it’s not my eyes (again). I took a look and it seems the sag is real bad.

    Wonder how CN keeps the fuel tank from scraping the rails.

    A real mystery indeed.

  2. Two really good examples of this are currently found on page 12 (they may have moved to page 13 soon). Mike Molnar and Brian Bui both shot the same train and you can easily see in their photos the amount of sag. I can’t imagine that the frame of a barn is much different than a hood unit. A real mystery.

  3. Is it me or is the frame bent in the middle? It sags downwards.
