For my 1000 photo on this site I was hoping to send something in that was a bit special, well I guess this kind of counts, LOL. At least it’s not just a pair of coal spray covered GEVO’s. Back before starting a straight night shift at my current company, for many years I would follow the “Holiday Train” around Southern Ontario. I kind of miss the days when it had six axle power. I have to say a heritage SD70 would be nice but understand for CP the four axle units make more sense. I wasn’t sure how long this train would last unaltered into the CPKC era, but so far only the stage car wears CPKC lettering. Thankfully the boxcars behind the power so far do not. This unfortunately was just a quick catch on the way to work so the location is pretty common for me. Maybe next year I’ll call in sick.

  10. Congrats on your 1000th Marcus. I agree, I miss the 6 axles too. I saw this US version of the train that stopped at Kinnear for the show, stopped at Lambton for a change for some time. I wondered what the performers had to do! Hopefully a good deck of cards. ;)
