This Union Pacific 8871 engine had quite the time the last few days. It ran light power eastward yesterday to rescue CP 255 at Guelph Junction and led back west later that day to quite the crowd of railfans. It then ran back east and south down the Hamilton sub for a pick up over night. Today was its return trip as 2T69 where it led the original power for CP 254/255 in CP 8704 and CP 8077 back west with 6800 feet of auto racks.
