Barn. On the very early morning of Februrary 28, 2021, Canadian Pacific/CMQ 9020 (SD40-2F) sits in front the former passenger station in Jackman, Maine with Train 251 awaiting its recrew. The term "barn" describes this class of Canadian built GMD SD40-2s in a cowl unit full-width body. Of 25 built, 10 were purchased by CMQ, and the other 15 have been retired or scrapped by CP. The subsequent re-purchase of CMQ by CP brought these 10 back on to the CP Roster. A robust power set including trailing units CP 6024 (SD40-2), CMQ 9011 (SD40-2F), CP 2318 (GP20C- ECO) and CMQ/LTEX 3817 (GP38-3) awaits its departure in the snow.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
