The Société du chemin de fer de la Gaspésie recently repainted two of its ex-CP RS-18's into an SP Black Widow-inspired paint scheme. They are first and third on this windmill train which consists of 72 flat cars holding 48 windmill blades (as well as 1 loaded woodchip car up front), as it rounds a curve and approaches a crossing. These windmill blades are destined for Texas and represent a new business for the Société du chemin de fer de la Gaspésie, which runs this scenic ex-CN line.

  1. Thanks everyone.

    The blades are manufactured at a factory in the town of Gaspé.

  2. Where are the windmill blades manufactured? (please forgive me if you have mentioned this previously)

  3. Sweet scene. Nicely done.

  4. My father actually liked working on these, he’s not going to believe they’ve been refurbished again :)

  5. This angle gives an excellent view of the 3 engines. Very nice work on this photo shoot Michael. :-)
