Four SD40-2s are westbound through Rosedale when they were still common. Of special interest is 5485, a high nose unit acquired from Norfolk Southern. It hasn't yet had the cab windows blanked out, and except for the lettering on the side, it's pretty much as delivered. When the CP Rail scheme was in the design stages, the ad firm in charge originally imagined the power in a black dip job with a red and white multi-mark. Now imagine if CP had approved it - this is probably a close representation of what it might have looked like.

  1. Since it’s ex NW, do you know it if had the dual control stands? That’s as far as I know of the heritage. About the control stands I don’t know.
