    Default CP #7021 at Bensenville

    Caught this SD70ACu Monday, pulling out of the yard headed to the east main toward Chicago.
    A little more worse for ware than I thought she'd look, but still a pleasure to see. I'm not a horn literate guy, so can't tell you what is mounted up top - but the engineer really gave us a sound show as he was rolling by, and it was a fantastic sounding horn! The conductor had a big grin on his face too, giving us a wave and fist bump.

    Nice shots! Just because, I looked up a video and the horn is a K3LA. Common on the likes of UP and BNSF, but odd for a Canadian road. I'm not surprised it's already dirty, since all of CP's power is always dirty, isn't it?

    Hi Kevin,
    "Miss the old Diesel House!!!!", and the hump & tower too
    Hope you and Sean are doing well, and still get out to catch a freight or two when you can

    Travis, thanks for the info on the horn. "CP's power is always dirty, isn't it?" Exactly what I thought when I was taking the photo's, funny!
