Re: CN SD70M-2 8952 in GTW Blue ?

Darn, the D&TSL is the one I would want to see most. Granted it would look like the NS's NKP loco, but still I wanted to see it. Curious to me that two key components in the CN system have not been included - D&TSL and NAR (Northern Alberta Railway).Same kind of treatment that NS gave to New Haven ...

Re: CN SD70M-2 8952 in GTW Blue ?

While it's neat that CN is honoring the component RR's that make up its system, all these are going to be new widecab locos, that to me---are just ugly! So thanks---but no thanks. That would be wide nose locos - cabs are the same width - just ask Dick Eisfeller at Big E. :wink: At any rate, I guess...

Re: CN SD70M-2 8952 in GTW Blue ?

They're crankin' em out folks. Finishing touches of BCRail and Illinois Central (both GE's) can be seen at Tims Railfan Group on Facebook. Also, pictures and drooling chatter at Grand Trunk Western Tracker. CN employee in Port Huron told me a dozen or so out in short order. Giving NS a run for their...

CN SD70M-2 8952 in GTW Blue ?

Is this real ? Check out Trainorders Eastern discussion (10/10/20) - "GTW Lives SD70M-2 #8952"

If it's real - I wholeheartedly approve!

Re: CN Updates September 2020

That is interesting Man o' War. Solid Tank Car Trains are usually either Oil Trains or Ethanol Trains. They usually have one covered hopper on each end, unless this train was just a bunch of regular tank cars. Did you happen to get a car count? I see these types of trains all the time on the Virtua...
