One could consider this an eclectic collection of born-again relics. M&ET is Modesto & Empire Traction 70 tonner out of California last, having been around since 1947 before coming to the prairies in 2011. ! The CP 5919 is a recent acquisition by the last Mountain RR; having come over from CP in May of 2020. The Mobil Grain 6935 began life as CN 5199 and 3143 as CN 5214. Apparently a good mixture such as this can often be found at Aylesbury. It certainly makes up for the landscape............
