A classic A-B-A consist!? Kind of: CN GP40-2L(W)'s 9421 and 9504 work train #431 westbound on the Oakville Sub at Aldershot, with the obligatory gratuitous B-unit (F7B 9196) thrown in for good measure, one of the regulars on the Steel Train with matching A's. It looks to be a bit of a hot and humid day out, as the "air conditioning" on 9421 appears to be on full blast.

  1. Checking a few b unit photos, it appears the front of a b unit has the sand fill right next to the corner. You can see it just above the near corner handholds on the 9196. With that factoid established, we have the oddest elephant style I’ve seen in a while. :-)
