A strike at CP Rail has filled the small engine facility in Fort Frances to capacity. When negotiations failed, trains were pulled off the lines and the locomotives moved to storage—wherever space could be found.
At least, that’s one way to explain the many locomotives sitting where one would usually only find a couple of SW9s and two GP38s.
Actually, work on the upper staging yard of the layout has required me to move the units for safety—and the engine facility seemed like a perfect place for some temporary storage.
But it does look impressive, all those units lined up in a row!
