Here is an all-purpose necessity of the North.  The repair car. This unit is one of a handful of such MoW vehicles still operating in the outbacks of Ontario. Interesting relic. :o)

  1. Cool!

  2. Is that a Machine Shop On Wheels?
    I wonder if CN still uses it.

  3. Congrats on #600 my friend. Well done

  4. Oh yeah. 600.!! I didn’t realize it. Thank you, my mile 43.2 GALT sub buddy. May we see a train worth a damn someday. :o )

  5. This car was cut up for scrap a number of years ago as confirmed by a former co-worker, and former Regional Manager of Equipment.

  6. CN 52400 was scrapped in Hornepayne in 1999 to be precise.
    It was custom built and used by CN’s Car Department and not Engineering MOW.
