A very overpowered and short CP #557 on February 5, 1993 was eagerly awaited by the local railfan population. No wonder!!  It featured one-of-a-kind CP 8921 (RSD-17)followed by 4711 (M-636 converted to caterpillar engine in 1988)SD40-2 5601 (ret'd 2002), CP 4743 (another Big M) and SD40 5547 (ret'd by 2004) and maybe a dozen cars in tow. This image was taken on a rather warm morning for dead of winter, ground fog obvious from the Lemonville Rd bridge over the CN in Aldershot,ON.

  1. Tisk, tisk. Is there no controlling the young’uns these days ??

  2. The header said “two unique classics”… I figured you meant 8921 and Arnold. Now I see 4711 in there too…

  3. What a neat shot. Like Steve says this area has changed in the 20+ years. Which way was the train headed?

  4. Kinda cool how much this has changed.. in a short period of time since then.

  5. Thanks for tagging this one, JP. I never understood why this shot did not razz anyone, considering it was followed by dozens of railfans, as well as having 2 one-of-a-kinds up front. Du day, but couldn’t be helped.
