  1. I didn’t know there were still locomotives in B&LE paint. 2141 looks like it borrowed a grill from one..or a BNSF pumpkin or a G&W unit. Great catch!

  2. Brad, the orange “grill” is the locomotives AC unit. It is from an ex BNSF unit. 2141 is ex BNSF/ATSF and CN has spare parts from other BNSF units to replace them. Those AC units are very common to be mismatched on units actually!

    As for the BLE, there is still many units in BLE paint, just not on the BLE as much anymore…most call Chicago or the DMIR home now.

  3. Jamie, very nice picture indeed ! Still a fan of the 3/4 wedge shot, especially when it is a 5-unit lashup of interesting power. What is the 1438 doing in this power consist ? Was it on its way to Stuart St or Burlington, and where was it picked up ? Thanks for posting, John

  4. John, 1438 went north from Toronto on a 303 the next day. Train would be destined for Winnipeg
