Exclusive images of CN's executive train

Three WMRC members really lucked out on a rail fanning excursion last week! Past president Larry Leavens, Social Media Director Paul Ullrich and Winnipeg Railway Museum President Gary Stempnick spotted a CN freight pulling seven executive passenger cars. Not only that, but they spotted this rare sight four times in four different locations on the same day!

They first witnessed this eastbound train barreling through Grant's Cut, just outside of Rivers. Then they spotted it just outside of Justice, Manitoba. It showed up for a third time by the Hart grain elevator, then for the last time at Portage La Prairie

All of these photos were taken on bridges, but Gary was on ground level at Portage when he saw them pass by. He reported that all of the passenger cars were empty, so it was assumed that they were being taken to CN headquarters in Montreal.
