Your last photo with the TH&B Geeps passing the tower is great.

All great shots. Love that long-hood forward CN configuration with the bell above the headlight.

Great shots !
The TH&B paint scheme was very nice.

Nice selection, Hoggerdoug. Nice to see them on the high iron again.

Good stuff as always.
Trying to figure out the roof ductwork on the Geep in #3 but noticed it's coupled to a Jordan Spreader. Must be for flying snow as opposed to cold temperatures.

Your Geep posting is most interesting, especially TH&B scenes.
Thanks for posting your photos.

What a nice series, Doug! I started shooting in 1976, so 3 GP9s on the headend of an important freight (if the auto racks are an indicator) is novel to me. The TH&B diamond shot is really crisp for the Instamatic.

Exactly; CN equipped some Geeps, some Fs, and some RS-18s with these shields for snow fighting service.
