Train Fan Walter Pfefferle of Beachville Ontario shot this Mack and CN domestic container in nearby Woodstock. He shot it at the CP station!



Nice picture Walter!

Nice photo but that MACK just does not look good in that paint scheme , looks like it was in an accident and the hood was replaced and not yet painted black.

 CNS locomotive paint job looks good on a long nosed tractor and the ORANGE mirrors have to go

I absolutely love this CN locomotive paint scheme. I hope it is OK to add a few that I took today. I see these trucks on the road all the time when I'm driving but never can take shots. Not often I have a day off (while a lot of people are working today) so I took advantage of the Canada Day weekend and in Canuck fashion caught these CN trucks. All were taken in 1 hour from hwy 176 north to the Fraser river where the Intermodal yard is. Sadly I missed a pair of great Peterbilts and a Western Star on the way up! Next time.

That's a neat variety of trucks you caught there!  The Volvo daycab is quite interesting, and the 386 looks great in that livery.
 Having that classic paint scheme put on trucks was a great initiative on CN's part.

Jim: Thanks for the contribution from Vancouver. Those are all excellent shots. I notice that their unit numbers all have a BV prefix. I assume that is an abbreviation for Broker from Vancouver.

Rob, you might be right there on the "BV", I noticed it on some of the shots as I viewed them after but good eye on your part. Do you have any "BT" in your region? I'll have to check the other postings. I have one more on Hank's in my collection and I see one did not load up for some reason. I'll go back and see what went wrong there.

    I have wanted to get some pictures of those trucks for a long time already, so nice to see I found a thread to "add" some more! Sounds to me like the paint scheme is either a "love it or hate it" deal, you know my take on it!!

Rob, here is the link to the T800 taken in Langley, if you can load it up from the link, feel free to do so!

Jim; the Toronto area trucks have BB as the prefix for their unit numbers.
I'm assuming that BB is Brampton (as in BIT) Broker.

Here in Quebec,it's BM...

Oh and the first truck in the fleet is BM 16...An all white T800...

I'll try to ask about the paint code...
