Just Simply Wow
Title:  Just Simply Wow
Description:  Wow, simply WOW! A new addition to CNs roster, a former CNW C40-8, leads out of the yard at New Brighton on a fine August day. This helped to give me some energy after a hard day a work boost me up a bit before my Business Law class as well. This unit was also VERY clean too. I'm really looking forward to seeing many more of these at New Brighton on L506 in the future.

Hard working Helpers
Title:  Hard working Helpers
Description:  Even better then the power on the head end was the pair of IC helpers! It was great to hear two SD40-3s in run eight giving it all they had to shove the train up grade. The bass and sound that these units made reminded me of the good old days when the WC Transfer would grind up Shoreham Hill.

ALCos trying to escape!
Title:  ALCos trying to escape!
Description:  The old saying that inside every GE, theres an ALCo inside, holds some merit in this shot. The CN 24XXs always smoke a bit, but this was something you usually don't see! Kinda reminded me of the Commercials 318 when it notches up.

Soo F units
Title:  Soo F units
Description:  In the classic scene from 1951, we see two Soo F3s that are about to head under Silver Lake Road. The first car is most likley going to be set out at New Brighton for the stock yards. This scene has changed dramatically over the last 58 years. All the fields are gone, the second main the train is on is gone, and the only things that still here are the telephone polls and the 1st mainline. Heres how it looks today http://wc_sd45_7500.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=463983
