Soo 6623 West, Rockford, MN

One of the scenic highlights of the CP's Paynesville Sub is the Crow River Bridge at Rockford, MN.  CP train #429, a hot Chicago to Calgary train, is seen on the bridge with Soo SD40-2 6623 on the point.  Number 429 is mostly auto racks and pigs, with the balance empties bound for Canada.  This train was added in early 1998.  This view of the train is in evening hours of August 28, 1998, showing it sometimes has Soo power.  New CP 8500s (AC4400CWs) have been the standard power lately.
