    Default CP 6-Axle EMD's Going Strong!

    Imagine my surprise, when everyone is storing power, seeing these two old girls lending a hand behind the big GE on a mixed freight out of Bensenville this afternoon! I don't believe I have a single picture of a CP SD60-3 Triclops.
    Just prior to this, drove by UP Proviso (Global II) to see what was up, and was saddened to see the long lines of stored power.
    And just as bad was driving by O'Hare (KORD) and seeing planes tied down on every inch of available tarmac near the cargo ramps and maint. buildings. I really need to go back and get pics of that. Not seen the likes of this since 911.




    Best wishes, and stay safe!

    Cool catch.

    I always am forgetting CPR has some of them UP SD60's now.

    UP?! That's one of five Soo SD60Ms. There were many standard-cab SD60s, but only five widecabs. Not only are SD40-2s uncommon on CP these days, that GE is a rebuilt AC44CWM, also. Cool power all around

    Yep, def an old SOO girl. CP SD40-2's I'll catch putting together or ripping apart trains every so often, but it's been awhile since I've seen one on a road freight.

    Jim - sadly, must certainly be commonplace everywhere. Next weekend I am going to do a 360 around O'Hare and see what kind of pics I can grab. It was almost uncomfortably eerie to see, but do want to archive some pics of it for my collection.
    Even in Flightsim I am only flying freighters now.
