The Parkdale Yard switcher is seen puffing smoke, as it shoves a cut of Gondolas back into the yard track. This unit is one of 3 CN SW1200’s left in existence on CN’s active roster, and it’s such a beauty to see this one still working away.

  1. Apparently this unit is not on CN’s roster as well as not CN crewed as has been discussed up here before. But it begs the question why the CN Noodle is retained? Not complaining. :) This is great as always! What about the other 2 units and sporting the same livery? Where are they?

  2. @BradKetchen the other 2 SW1200’s are switchers in Mac Yard from what I hear.

  3. IIRC, they are considered trackmobiles for local facility switching.
