I went up to Waverley Street in Winnipeg on Thursday to shoot the Canadian. It turned out that they had a problem with toilets and stayed at the Maintenance Centre at Fort Rouge until 14:00, so I never saw them. However, I did see CN 111... with CN 8888 on the point.
For noon, it was pretty dark!
CN 8888 is an SD70M-2, one of CN's shiny new units. The DPU unit was another SD70M-2, CN 8021, but it's not so shiny now!
Most of the current Class 1 railroads have an 8888 in use.
