CP on Sunday
First CN on Saturday, now CP on Sunday.
On my way back from the Prairie Dog Central, I stopped at Canadian Pacific Railway's Rigby Yard in downtown Winnipeg in the late afternoon. I went to the soccer field by the Diesel Repair Shops to see what was parked outside. Alas, a long container train (CP 110) was pulling slowly eastward and obstructed the view. CP 8741 was the lone unit up front, with CP 8624 in the middle and CP 8519 pushing on the rear. Here's 8624 going by:
As the end of the train neared, a little local with CP 5756 rolled by with 2 cars. Then 8519 came into view, then they all left and revealed CP 1693 patiently waiting in the rear. It turned out to be a neat little video.
I took a bunch of shots to take inventory of what was at the shops. These are what I saw:
CN 2513 (!)
I didn't have time to go to the Arlington Bridge to see more of the yard. Next time!
