A snowy send off, with a CP Rail 8200 series GP9u and GP38-2 CP 3096 (last digit ?) leading a short train of new locomotives away from the GM Diesel Division Plant in London toward CP's Quebec Street Yard. At the switch ahead they will leave GM DD track and enter CP's Galt sub. 
The unit in primer is SD60i CR 5589, I guess Conrail paints it blue at Juniata Works in Altoona PA. 
On flat car CP 315502 are four 5' 3" gauge 3-axle trucks for Irish Rail (Iarnród Éireann) JT42HCW locomotives 229 and 231 on the last 2 flatcars of this train. Date provided based on approximate build dates and weather conditions.

  1. A nice St. Patricks day post. Cheers!

  2. Nice how that’s green and not the typical primer grey.

    You can’t beat the weather though. It does add to the pic in a very nice way.
