We knew the Canadian was late due to a problem with the lead unit, we just didn't expect an RS3 would be the rescue power.  By the time it arrived we were almost out of light and I was down to 1/60 second exposure.  It's a little fuzzy but I'm not complaining, considering the odds.  In this scene it's about to make its second last stop at West Toronto Station.

  1. Now that is one funky 70′s passenger train lashup! And with a passenger GP9 too (IIRC, RS10′s were most common on the Sudbury-Toronto portion).

    I wish I was either born earlier, or have access to a time machine…

  2. At 1st glance,I thought CP was badly short of power.

  3. Great catch!
    As far as I know the CP F’s lacked nose m.u.’s. Do you recall, is the RS-3 is the only active unit here?
    sdfourty.

  4. They must be running 2 crews: the Canadian’s crew in the F, and the rescue RS3′s crew.

  5. Never saw a pic of an RS3 on the Canadian, much less in the lead. Great shot. Hiawatha Pete. http://northamericabyrail.info
