    These pictures were taken along the main CP line near the border between Saskatchewan and Alberta.
    A hot day in the August 2001. Note CP 6623 one of the few remaining SD40-2s, has doors open for additional cooling [​IMG]
    I zoomed in to CP8573 an AC4400CW

    Matthyro,
    Nice clean paint jobs there! No need for weathering when modeling those!

    Hey I lived on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan for half my life !!!! Not on the CPR line, though, on the CN. But still . . . .

    Hey Michael at one stage in my life I was stationed at the airbase in Moose Jaw and used to fly those ugly yellow harvards all through this area so know it well from the air. Where did you live?

    OK Loydminster is the only place with a yellow line drawn down the main road to seperate the provinces.
    I used to vist there when I worked for Eatons as we had a home furnishing store there at one time.
