GP9s Galore.  CN 385 stalled on Dundas Hill when their second unit, IC GP40 3117, decided it wasn't up to the task.  Local power from Aldershot was summoned to push the train to Paris.  The GP38-2 / GP9RM / GP9RM consist is seen shoving hard on the rear of 385 passing CN 4114 in the yard.  Once 385 cleared, 580's crew got on board and departed the yard to switch Normerica.

  1. You are making me miss not being at work :-(
    Loved having to assist trains up to Copetown or Paris..lol happens often.
    In the good old days you could just couple on and shove. Times have changed.

  2. I should have skipped History…

    BTW 4771 was dropped by 435 tonight, facing East as well/

  3. Agreed with Marcus…excellent catch! :D

  4. Now that’s my kind of lash up. Nice catch!
