It was during March break from school in 1997 that my dad and I went out for the day around Woodstock and area. The weather was nice and spring was certainly in the air as we waited for a Canadian Pacific westbound to arrive that we heard approaching on the scanner. We waited on the Highway 59 bridge by the west end of Coakley siding. After somewhat of a wait, CP 5655 west curved into view and across the bridge with step-sister SD40-2‘s 5431 and 5428. Prior to being acquired by CP both 5431 and 5428 were former GATX leasers, then prior to that were Union Pacific as they originally were built for Missouri Pacific and obtained through the large UP/MP merger. After getting our photos here, the chase was on towards London for hopefully one more photograph of this colorful westbound.
