GP-9 back on the Waterfront

CN 7210 Built 04/1959 was in Rupert today offloading the rail barge from Whitter. it looks like the crew will have to wait for the raising tide before reloading the barge for the trip North. It has been awhile since I've seen CN use this type of power here. The barge crew usually has mainline road power like SD50's or Dash-9's assigned to them. I'll try to find out if they ran the GP down on its own or in a consist with some bigger power.

Those red lights on top of the Short and Long Hood are for Belt-pack (remote control)operation, when flashing. Also if you see that (flashing)and the whisle blows repeatedly, it means the consist has been placed into emergency and will continue to sound until stopped.
