The first KCS unit to be repainted in CPKC colours, KCS 4805 is seen about to duck beneath a sided bridge just east of Mortlach SK.  My thoughts on this new scheme (although completely irrelevant) would be to ditch the gold logo with the white background and just make the letters bigger.  What are your thoughts ?

  1. I voted for this one. I am part of cpkc history.

  2. Horn cluster on backwards?

  3. I suspect that the logo will get phased out.

  4. Well since you asked… I am opposed to any new scheme but this was the worst of both worlds. The white background ruins an otherwise perfectly good logo and the black on the tail looks like some sick mix of CN and the fictitious AWVR scheme. I feel it represents an American shift to what was Canada’s transcontinental railroad. But I’m just a foamer who can’t change anything so oh well.
