Reg Button caught this very interesting westbound consist in perfect afternoon light in mid-March 1987.
MLW M630 CP 4573 carries a white extra flag on the engineer's side only.
Following are Algoma Central GMD SD40 AC 183, MLW RS-18 CP 8765, and GMD SW1200RS CP 8161.
All CP units wear the then-current wide-stripe multimark scheme.
That same year 1987, CP stopped applying multimarks and black ends during re-painting.

  1. Thought this looked familiar. I shot this train at West Toronto diamond only the last unit was CP 8781. So they switched out the trailing unit.
