The yard in Revelstoke is getting a much needed cleaning. Assisting in the spreading operation with Jordan Spreader CP 402889 are a pair of visitors in the form of CITX 3036 (and CITX 3008 out of frame). A pair of SD40-2's with obvious Burlington Northern heritage. The amount of snow that falls over the winter season in Revelstoke and area mountain passes is incredible with plow and spreader operations frequently being called to clear the rails of the Mountain and Shuswap Subs.  
Roster Note: CITX 3036 would be purchased by Norfolk Southern a couple years later and become NS 3501, being painted up in an Operation Lifesaver scheme. It was removed off their roster by 2020- disposition unknown to me.

  1. For those keeping track, CP 402889 is a Jordan Type J spreader with short broken wings, low front blade, serial number 1413, built in 1967. It is still active on the CP Work Equipment roster in 2020.

  2. Thanks Paul! Great piece of information!
