The CN 1555 Yard Job is pictured from the Marina Park Overpass with a pull of empties from Richardson (the non-derelict looking terminal in the backdrop). The head end cars were CPs, and the remainder CNs, which needed to both be moved for them to later take some recently arrived cars from a CN G840 unit grain back down to Richardson to spot.

  1. Fantastic!

  2. It amazes me how long this set has stuck together! Nice shot. Look forward to seeing more from your trip.

  3. Thanks guys.

    Ryan, I was shocked too. I did a quick search of the .net RP of “Thunder Bay” and it looks like it changed several times over the year and cycled back to this. Ones that come to mind from that search include a set with DMIRs on both ends (one in CN paint) with a different widecab CN 40-2 in the middle, a 403-672 double set (even on my trip it was this for a day, but I didn’t get any shots), a 672-widecab CN double set, etc. Cool that it cycled back to what it was last July.

  4. That is indeed pretty fantastic. Good show.

  5. Thanks Rob, it’s a fun town.
