While waiting for CP Rail #11 ….


   … the eclectic CP ...


   CP Rail power lash ups circa 1978 – these type of scenes are what made us look for more !


   two GMD 1960 built SW1200RS'S; a MLW 1958 built RS-10; a GMD 1950's built FP7A 


   8156 – 81xx – 8564 – 40xx


   'Highballing' North: daily CP Rail #955 near Kleinberg, August 26, 1978 Kodachrome by S.Danko


   interesting: 8158's third stack is the watch man heater, essentially an engine block heater: fueled by oil (diesel).


   Only about twenty five (of 72) 8100's were: “equipped with safety devices to operate in the lead position”
  

   and seems to me that this location is near the present day intermodal facility.

  1. Now that’s a neat lash up!

  2. What a catch !! Amazing to think this was the assigned power on a long distance freight. I believe 955 was a Toronto to Thunder Bay drag.

  3. 1200′s on a through freight? Wow. Very nice.
