  1. Yeah they’ve been sold but ‘work’ is happening right in Readlyn with the intent to lease. There was the framework of something like a makeshift scaffold/paint booth/tent-like shop up around the one when I was through there. I didn’t bother with a shot because there really was nothing aesthetic about the scene whatsoever, and the weather was miserable at the time.

  2. They were offered for sale for $250k for all of the operating and parts units. I thought someone had purchased them (an outfit in Montreal that parts units for Marine applications)

  3. Wish I could’ve seen these units working when I was out there, but alas, change is the only constant. There’s a gutted one out back of the GWR shops in Assiniboia that was evidently used for parts, and the others sit on a siding in Readlyn, having been sold. It would appear that someone is trying to fix them up to lease them out. The units on either end are both nose in, which certainly impacts the photogenicity of the scene.

  4. Nice!

  5. Nice old shot with the M420s!!
