Remarks & Notes 
The face of the deceased. Built as RS18, CP 8746 in 1958, rebuilt in 1980 having it’s nose chopped along with other upgrades is was reclassified as a RS18u and renumbered 1802, only to be converted to a “Control Cab” fifteen years later in December 1995. By 2002 it had been retired by CP, sold to OSR and moved to Guelph Junction. Today, as it has for close to a decade, the rusted and beaten, salvaged shell of an engine sits feet away from the rails where sister RS18u’s ply the rails from parts she has given, so the vintage fleet of First Generation Diesel engines still live into the 21st century.

Generally speaking, shots where less than a full engine is shown. But I want to feature details, not half engines or full cabs, and definitely not full nose shots. Just shots where someone has zoomed in with purpose.
Prototype for everything . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
