PRG 7305 working the elevator yard

Former CN 7305 GMD SW1200RS was working the Prince Rupert Grain elevator on Ridley Island early this morning in the rain. The locomotive had been leased from CN but was purchased after a derailment accident. Now rebuilt, crews use the locomotive to do the switching assignments in the rail yard pushing strings of loaded cars in to the electric car indexer to be offloaded.
