Goodbye Sunday Morning Calm
The Sunday morning calm is shattered when CP Rail SD40-2 5417 (ex-KCS 672), leads a train out of a tunnel towards Fort Frances, Ont.
In real life, the unit was acquired by CP Rail from KCS in 1992. To make it, I bought a KCS unit (Athearn blue box) and removed the KCS lettering and numbers. I then masked the area below the cab windows and gave it a patch of primer, after which I added the numbers. Red CP Rail lettering was also applied to the body.
