You may recall that I visited the Dundonald grain elevator near Portage la Prairie back in March. I shot the elevator and its engine but the shots didn't turn out, due to a bad camera setting. I was in Portage yesterday for a model train show and decided I had to get the shot again.
You can be sure I checked the photos afterward!
The engine is parked right beside the elevator, under shelter.
The engine is a GP15-1. According to this page it was built for Conrail in December 1979 as CR 1661. It became part of Norfolk Southern after Conrail was broken up and was sold to GATX Leasing.
