2. Shot of my Athearn Custom painted GP50 into CBNS livery #5007

3. shot from the spur switch off the main, showng the mill in the center, and the track continuing to the left is the spur going to the Transloading Facility

Hi Luc, Welcome to the ModelRailroadForums, NBEC Rail eh!, I plan on doing one of the SD40's sometime this year along with a CFMG SD40 I'm still trying to figure out what that grey thing is on the bottom right in your first photo. :D

Willis, it's a Depressed Center Float trailer next to the mighty C44-9W

I'm getting myself a brand new NBEC SD40 done, I should get it sometimes in March, hopefully!

Thanks for the comment guys!
