CN 8012
Title:  CN 8012
Description:  Remember when these were new? Well, yes, they still are, but its not being given any special privillages on the CN's roster. I bet this hasn't been to the wash racks once.....

IC a Great Consist!
Title:  IC a Great Consist!
Description:  While the title is extremely cheesy, I thought this was quite a sight. A nice Thanksgiving present, and the 3rd unit is the first WC to come down to New Brighton again since March. With the SD45's gone, its not that hard to see why.

A Tad Late
Title:  A Tad Late
Description:  After waiting for this train to come by my viewfinder for what seemed like an eternity, as It raced the sun to this spot, It shows up in the last acceptable time. Since the sun dipped, the light was dropping extremely fast, which caused me to do the unthinkable.....Yup, bump the ISO to 800. The grain could be worse though....

Description:  IC 6118 leads a museum piece and an IC SD70 out of town. That GTW GP9R is the first GP9 to come to New Brighton since ATLEAST 2001. To think that the CN even has some left is definately amazing.....

The First
Title:  The First
Description:  The first WC Transfer of the year to have three SD40-2's for power. This was common in 2006,2007,and the summer of 2008, but its definately something to get excited about now. This is also the first time, yes, the FIRST time Ive shot three IC 61XX's together in over 6 years of frequenting the yard here.

Description:  The Empress of all engines (next to the SD45), the EMD SD40 from 1966-1971. Here the 6002 idles away on a frigid day with a newer SD70M-2 leading the way. For a split second that bell reminded me of the GM&O instead of CN!

Rickety Business
Title:  Rickety Business
Description:  Two Bandits negotiate the Cowin industrial spur, which for many years was so horribly out of guage that you had about a 50-50 chance of staying on the rails, which isn't the nicest set of rails I've ever seen. They are going to tie onto the two cars in the foreground, and a flatcar which is behind the two hoppers as well.

Last Hurrah?
Title:  Last Hurrah?
Description:  Resting on the wye, the two bandits on Transfer one will tie back onto the cars on the mainline after the conductor is done inspecting them. A very cool sight that most likely will never be repeated, as the paint shop down in Iowa has these two units plus many others on the waiting list.

The Whole 9 Cars
Title:  The Whole 9 Cars
Description:  Well, its actually 11 cars, and only one working unit. The WC Transfer has some great power today, with the exception of the WC 3024 being shut down due to some sort of problem. But, A WC unit running or not, plus a GTW Blue Geep is nothing to complain about. But, 11 cars definately is!

WC 3024 D&D
Title:  WC 3024 D&D
Description:  Dead and Drained is the first native unit to New Brighton this year. Maroon and Gold at New Brighton, dead or not, is something that is a refreshing sight. Only about 4 WC's visited in 2008, and since the SD45's were rid of that has pretty much been the story.

WC 3024
Title:  WC 3024
Description:  A former WP Geep joins another fallen flag Geep this morning, the GTW 4909 is of Mopac heritage. Still with its original 1990 Imron paint, this is one of the best looking GP40's left. This, while being a nice set of power, is with only one good unit. The WC 3024 developed problems the night before only 2 miles out of Stevens Point, and the reports are not extremely promising.
