A string of empty hoppers headed for Fort McMurray to be filled with sulphur. I really liked catching trains on this curve but good photos were only to be had in the late summer evenings when the sun shone high in the northwest sky. In just a few more years the trees will have made pictures like this impossible, although it may be otherwise now. If the train had been a long one (50-60 cars) the rear of it will have been visible in the light green patch through the trees ahead of the 4350. Photo taken at the Redwater river trestle, time is 20:00.

  1. That is 100% correct Paul. They were ordered with small fuel tanks and the lighter flexicoil trucks for work on the light rail branch lines found on the prairies. Lots of those trucks found a new life under rebuilt GMD-1′s. :-)
    I should add that just a few blocks of these geeps were ordered. The majority came with blombergs, which were much more commonly seen in the eastern half of Canada.

  2. No Blomberg trucks on these geeps, was that a “custom” CN modification?
