  1. I also have heard a little about this debate. I understand that if it is a piece of MOW equipment it does not need a full qualified engineer to operate it. To me it sure looks like a locomotive with a train. I would be interested to hear if any one knows how things work out.

  2. The three GP38 locomotives converted for use as Power Units on these first three MOW Trains were CP 3001, CP 3005, & CP 3007.

  3. CP MOW-01 consists of;
    Power Unit MW 9507-10 Railcar #CP 403011 ex-CP 3001
    3-pack well car CP 403021 Greenbriar built
    3-pack well car CP 403022 Greenbrier built
    3-Pack well car CP 403023 Greenbrier built
    Non-powered B cab MW 9507-11 Railcar #CP 403091 ex-CP 522325 95′ flat
    The first 3 CP MOW trains are assigned to AB, BC, & SK.

  4. The information you’ve conveyed here matches up with what I’ve heard. I’ve also heard from an inside source that it’s provoked some controversy in the matter of who is qualified to operate it. After all, it is for all intents and purposes still a locomotive.

  5. Awesome catch, hope they send it East one day :)

  6. Seeing this photo sure grabbed my attention!!!
