This pair sounded amazing as they struggled up the Niagara Escarpment at 20 MPH with around 40 loaded ballast cars in tow. While not in CPR paint as in  Arnolds photo  they are still a feast for the senses.
And why is it when I plan a week off well in advance this seems to happen? It happened last time in June 2020... no complaints, a worthy use of the time.

Caption: Passing under a classic CPR wooden farmers bridge and with the Niagara Escarpment looming in the background, This pair of re-patriated SD40-2F's sounded amazing as they struggled up grade at 20 MPH with around 40 loads in tow. While not in CPR paint as in Arnolds photo they are still a feast for the senses.

  1. I thought our days were numbered to see these again after that initial outburst when CP took over CMQ.
    Nice to know every foamer except me was out yesterday. (I was too lazy)
    Very nice shot at a distinctive location.

  2. Thanks. I should note 8 feet of elevation was required to get this angle (14 feet with my height)

  3. Roof of the truck?

  4. Oh, forgive me. Stepladder in the bed of the truck. The sheer weight of your hair would put a dent on the roof.

  5. HahahhaHhhaha

  6. That’s the spot I was thinking but when I heard about it, it was much too late even try….. Great shot!!
