In the spring of 1989 I captured quite the interesting set of power on a BN train (Superior to Grand Forks) rolling west through Carlton. No less than eight(!) geeps were the power on this cloudy/foggy day. The first three were dark blue ex-Mopac geeps leased from Helm plus a pair of leased Conrail blue GP38s from EMD. Rounding out the power were three BN geeps, with 2734 (a GP39) being the only non-GP38 model type in the consist.
