CP 7015 leads train 100 for the first time across our great Nation in "block" lettering, over 3000 miles from Vancouver to Toronto and only about 50 miles to go on its transcontinental journey. The day before 7010 led in "script" lettering, and was the first ever to lead on the Transcontinental mainline into Toronto. With the addition of the "military" units and the 8 more "maroon" heritage SD70's yet to come, it's going to be busy with photographers on the CP mainline for the foreseeable future. Thanks to the folks at CP who made it possible, you know who you are and we're all smiles because of it :) Looking forward to everyone's photos, so far it has been a great show! 
Shouts out to John Spring and  Mike Lockwood who were shooting with me at this spot.

  1. Kevin there’s quite a few multimarks still in service :)

  2. Nice Steve. Now with another order, chances go up for catching one of these.
    From my notes: CP 7010-7014 will wear the “script lettering” and CP 7015-7019 will wear the “block lettering”. I also agree that CP is doing a great job with these…but they are missing a paint scheme…the CP Rail multimark action red scheme.

  3. The CP red and the maroon heritage colors go well together. Very nice work Steve.

  4. Great shot Stephen—hopefully I’ll catch one of these beauties on 246/247 through Hamilton’s Kinnear Yard
