SD40-2F, CP 9014 with SD40-2 CP 6028 rumble their way up the grade as they head under the Twiss Road signal bank hauling a load of rails westward up the Galt sub. The former CMQ 9014 looks quite nice in its new CPKC red paint scheme but I think I would have preferred the old original blue and white a bit more. Running low on fuel, they decided to pull in to Puslinch siding to refuel but after the crew stopped to check the tanks, they decided to continue on to Wolverton where refueling would be easier. The sun came out as they rounded the bend with the still very dark skies in the background making the clean red stand out nicely.

  3. They parked in Wolverton, yesterday they ran to London but no room , so parked in Lobo siding where they sit today, facing east.

  4. In my opinion, CMQ is the worst scheme the barns have been in so far.
