A pair of oldies lead a CN freight south out of Capreol, Ontario on July 13th, 2015.  2028 was built for the C&NW in March 1989 as their 8529.  It later became UP 9051.  The trailing unit is 2423 which was built for CN in March 1990.
It is interesting to note the train order board located within the museum's grounds.  CN made the museum remove the blades as it might confuse train crews. 
Train number 314 is a guess.

  1. Are both of these units still active or scrapped?

  2. Any idea where that wig-wag crossing protection equipment came from? No one on that crew ever had to endure a rules class in the CN 15019 Rule Instruction Car they just rolled passed!

  3. Thanks for the comments.
    CN 2028 is still running around Minnesota hauling ore cars. The 2423 is off the roster and most likely scrapped.
    I have no idea where the wig-wag crossing equipment came from, but my guess would be not local.
    I took my rules class in the YMCA, but took the tests in the rule car.
