Seems like record profits and lack of investment in infrastructure has bit the railways in the butt. In a way it's good to see that they are doing well but are there long term goals to increase capacity on their networks? I know CN is spending a bunch of cash to extend sidings and double track some areas. What is CP doing to alleviate this problem?

Ex. CP boxcars 21712 and 80356 in the City of Medicine Hat's compound. They are used as extra storage.

On 80356, you can still see the old logo (pre "Pac-Man")

Not sure what this is, but it was also downtown

If these F units can be restored, would they run? Are the prime motors intact?

They are just shells, as far as I can tell. No propulsion systems inside.

No photo due to SD card malfunction, but I just spotted CN 5607 (1995 SD70I) in the Medicine Hat CP yard!
