Omnitrax had a neat mix of power assigned to the Okanagan Valley Railway. This brightly painted GP10 was the only unit we found on that trip in the railway colours although like most units it at some point visited sister railroad Central Kansas Railway and received their markings. All was quiet this day with the rest of the railroads power parked elsewhere in town. Unfortunately Omnitrax eventually gave up the operation and I believe most of the line sits unused or ripped up today. CN I believe may still operate some shared portion of the line as well. Maybe someone can clarify.

  1. This might shed some light on the situation…

  2. Thanks Matt. Looks like the most southern end that was removed. I believe that was that was originally CN trackage that the KPR ran over. The OVR ran over firmer CP tracks. There was also shared trackage as well I believe. A very interesting area.
