  1. Nice! These were some of my favorite leased units of the Great Sandhills railway, too bad they’re gone. That second unit looks like 4221, which by April 2010 had a blown turbocharger. Last time I checked they had two GMTX GP38M-2s and a LLPX 38-2, two DLCX SD40-3s, and a DMVW GP35R. Just one note though, this would be still in Saskatchewan, rather than Alberta. Again, great catch!

  2. Guys – use the contact form and send us a list of missing railways – we’ll correct this and add the others you think are missing.

  3. Check out that funky windmill. Looks more like a modern hd television antenna.
