Coal train with a surprise
Title:  Coal train with a surprise
Description:  Many of the coal trains in this period ran with CP power, but sometimes NS would let a couple of units run through. The GP 38 was an oddity-almost all the NS power on these trains was 6 axle-but the stranger in town was a surprise, and CP tunnel motor.
