Back in the day CP train 141 was one of those trains a railman could easily get bored of, and the fact it was all empty flat cars often lost in the track side weeds didn't help either. At least opposite train 142 was fully loaded, so much more impressive. As the Alco control cab sets were gradually retired the train got a bit more colourful, often with a mix of GP9's, GP38's and GP40's. For a while the weathered set of former Guilford/B&M 4655 and 4652 held down train 141/142, while ratty by appearance the two were a nice change from CP red. Here 141 has almost finished its climb up the Niagara Escarpment as it cruises through Guelph Jct.
