Heres a pair of MP15's pulling cars from the UP,WSOR, & IC&E interchange tracks in Janesville WI.
OR...how about 5 MP15's pulling a string of covered hoppers into Beloit WI:thumb::thumb::thumb: .
I'm interested in that blue CN boxcar. It might be an old blue Grand Trunk Western boxcar . GTW is owned by Canadian National.
I checked the CN roster at:
boxcars - CN Lines SIG
It confirms what I mentioned in the above reply:
This steel CN boxcar is painted a distinct blue colour as are most of (all?) the others in the series CNA 794xxx series. It was built in 1970 by Pullman Standard and was originally numbered in the GTW 309000-309299 series and used in automotive service.
BT, thanks for checking into that!
Nice picture. I had to check out that CR E unit with the Geep behind it too! Also very nice!
Keep 'em coming Charlie!
