CP 779
Title:  CP 779
Description:  In a somewhat unusual move, a St. Paul yard hump set led by CP 779 pulls potash train 630 through Red Rock before backing it towards a dock on the Mississippi River. Making this move even more unusual is trailing unit CP 6058, a B-Unit with boarded-up windows that normally sees service only in Canada.
