Just another day on the Adirondack Sub.
Title:  Just another day on the Adirondack Sub.
Description:  In 1993, big MLWs were still common on CP trains in the east. Here two examples provide the muscle while an RS18 leads the way. Worth noting are the remnants of the original 5" striping on the cab front wall of both M630s. Unfortunately, I don't know if this train had come north off the D&H or west from St. John.

Pink Elephants
Title:  Pink Elephants
Description:  The dead line at St. Luc includes M636 4726, M630 4508, M630 4556, an RS-23, and other MLW products. Most of CP's big MLWs were still in service at this time, but these examples were not among them. However they do exhibit the faded look known by some fans and railroaders as "pink elephants".
