Cabooses Donated to Portage la Prairie Station
Two cabooses have been donated to the Portage la Prairie CPR station. CP 434560 and CP 434604 are now in Portage in the CP yard, awaiting installation of track. 434604 is burned out and will be used for parts for 434560.
I shot both those cabooses outside Calgary in June. At the time I said they seemed to be at the "end of their days"... I'm glad to see one of them will have a new life.
CP will also be donating a mail baggage car, currently in Brandon MB awaiting shipment.
Thanks to Jeff Keddy for the news.
