An era long past
Title:  An era long past
Description:  Ah yes, the moldy oldies. CP 5607 waits with the 5951,6012,SOO 4447, and SOO 2064 near Apache Plaza. The New Brighton/Saint Anthony landmark was being torn down at the time, and although you can barely make out the complex right next to the plow, this scene will never be created again. The rare move was the fact that this train detoured up the Withrow Sub, which only sees the WC daily manifests and a CP Transfer One that runs daily. Photo scanned.

WC 6614
Title:  WC 6614

All are now retired or scrapped except for the 2005. I swear this must have been 400 speed film...... Date Approx, photo scanned.

GCFX 3087
Title:  GCFX 3087
Description:  At the time I was used to GCFX's, but of the Gec Alsthom 6000 variety. One from the CSX batch found its way to the WC Transfer along with an AC44, creating my first image of the "other" GCFX's. Luckily in early 2008 the CP picked up the lease so I was fortunate to shoot some more.

Now, the coal trains are gone,the WC 7528 is gone, and even the Trainmaster is no longer at the depot here. About the only thing that isn't vaporized in this shot is the UP 3198, which I saw heading to Superior this morning (3/29/08).

Title:  WC Memories
Description:  Even though its a year until the SD45s will all be retired, this would be the last time I would ever catch three of them together at New Brighton. But, at the time, I wasnt thinking about the future one bit, just enjoying the V20s in all their glory.
