We Got a Pair!

Ex-CP E8 1802 was one of two surviving such CP units that were transferred to VIA.  Though built in the US, they were the only E's operated by a Canadian railway.  Sometimes they operated together in VIA service and/or with ex-CP F-units and/or ex-CP RS10's.  In Winnipeg, (shown in this partial photo, which will appear in full in my second book) they're pulling a train headed by an ex-CN baggage car eastbound.  I wonder if they're together??

This blog has split, like a cell dividing itself.  Part will be devoted to my first book, and part will be devoted to my second book, the latter getting the majority of the limelight.  A new joint order form and advertising is on the way.  The red background means the second book is close to completion.

Just like a green signal at the east end of Winnipeg station, when the green appears, you can probably guess by now, it's time to...

    "Anyway, the new (tentative) cover looks great!, as does the table of contents.

    I was wondering if this book will be out before xmas?"

    Thanks for your positive feedback, Mark. We will be tweaking the cover here and there, and I really like the job Bryan did on it.

    To answer your question, I sincerely hope so. Makes a great Christmas gift, as they say on TV!

    Thanks for your support.
