One to cool you down during this hot and humid July 2020.

  CP 5511 is being used to hostle 4700 either into or out of the Windsor roundhouse.  Sometimes during cold weather, the big-un's air starters would freeze up so they would shove them into the house for a warm-up. 
  CP5552-4706 in the background are sitting on the fuel/sand track.

  1. Excellent. Definitely miss the nose stripes.

  2. GMD’s must’ve been great starters in the winter, as opposed to MLW’s.

  3. Man I’d love to go back in time and see what Windsor was like then. Great shot!
