Great stuff. Happy Monday indeed.

Wish I had seen more of the northern operations, I was able to visit a few times until the end of the green paint.

I was a big fan of the C630M's...

701 was the last of the BCR 6 motors in that version of the green paint and wore it until retired...

701 has orange handrails. The colour og PGE/BCR handrails changed many times over the years.

Beautiful angle on the first shot, and the third is nice for the freshness, plus the trailer. CN seemed to move the C-424s off-line as often as they could get someone to lease them.
