Yes, this is Cochrane, Yes, this is a CN GP9RM, and Yes, it's the Northlander. It's May 2004 as the northbound Northlander Power GP38-2 1809 runs into a water problem somewhere around Huntsville on North Bay to Toronto CN trackage. Enter the pinch hitter, Huntsville Yard Engine GP9RM 4136. This thing ain't your Grandpas GP9 either literally rebuilt from the ground up by CN at their Pointe St. Charles Shops in Montreal back in 1991. Here we see Cochrane Shops' Hostler Mike climbing aboard as the unbelievably late train unloads.
