I had this  set back axle Western Star come at me a few weeks back but could not get a good shot, yesterday I caught up to the back of him................soon I will get the front side of the truck. When I do, I will exchange this photo, it really is a nice looking tractor and the CN livery looks fine on it!

That "locomotive" paint scheme is starting to grow on me. I also like how the mid-roof Columbia has a drop visor "look" without visor actually blocking half the windshield.

I agree Rob, those drop visor's don't sit well with me either you might just as well drive a car carrier.............upper visibility would be about the same..........I like to SEE the world while I drive!

Another Volvo waiting at the intersection of hwy 10 & 15 Cloverdale.



There were more.lots of them in transit but hard to catch!!

cn brampton is looking at the ex highland transport yard down near cherry beach the last couple of weekends pups and 53'' reefer units were parked in there plus a ottawa shunter there was about 6 yankee reefer traliors in there''european style'' along with about 20 pups stack on one another in plain view, the rail way tracks are still in tack down that way plus there transportation division was running in there plus brokers over the last couple weeks with empty container traliors there is a green day cab western star parked near the building with a float not sure what that is all about.
                                                                                                                                wayne crane

That area is called PIER 52, at 1 time it had lots of rail traffic.

Other than Cherry street being a bit rough not a bad location for a container operation.

Barraclou, nice catch! I take it that one is from Montreal?? It looks almost identical to the one I just spotted in Cloverdale.

This isn't the same area in the harbour lands where CP used to have their container operation is it?

All....

Checking in from the "Lower 48"... This C N effort looks like a good thing. From the
panel of photos here, it looks as if they are working past the "rough edges". Now,
does anyone care to explain the numbering plan? The first "B" must mean something.
The second "alpha" character apparently point of power domicile?

Resigned to the fact, likely we never, ever will see C N Green again. Though, that
whole "what if" has its own charms...

First "B" apparently for BROKER
Second Character:
M - Montreal
B - Brampton (The Toronto container terminal is B.I.T.- Brampton Intermodal Terminal which is, of course, located on Intermodal Drive.)
V - Vancouver.
I wouldn't be surprised to see BW and BE as well as Winnipeg and Edmonton are important inland terminals.

CN "Maple Leaf Green", Vern has not been used since the "WET NOODLE" logo was adopted around 1966.

Early 1961 for the debut of CN's "wet noodle" logo although it was a l-o-n-g time before the last "CN green" equipment was repainted.
