Its that time of year again, where winter photos look comfortable compared to the summer heat.  

It's a busy morning in Brandon as two sets of GP38's are seen switching the west end of the yard. In the distance a westbound grain train pulls down the main towards the station for a crew change.

  1. Thanks for the photograph Matt! I took a few pictures there in the 1960,s & your photograph does an excellent job of showing the site as it is today. Long gone are the yard office,the roundhouse,the water tower,and the sand towers along with a few other buildings. I can certainly see the locations where I used to take pictures! Great shot!

  2. Oh god.. you know what I thought when I saw these gp38′s in this scheme? *puke*. I hated how they all looked ratty, with the burn marks in the same spot. 3097 3105 were assigned to Galt for years and I was sick of them. I loved it when new paint arrived. Little did I know that multimark would be nearly eliminated, but the ‘varity show’ paint scheme era of CP (around this time) was nice to shoot.

  3. beauty man

  4. A trio of multimarks, nice!
