Throwback Thursday: Rent-A-Wreck, Part Two

This colourful consist made up of ACR 185, CN 3739, and CP 5412 was idling on the shop track at CP Quebec St yard on May 17, 1987.
By Peter Mumby.

If you were to operate a lash-up like this on your model railroad layout you might be subject to a few negative comments of the "that can't be prototypical" variety.  However, on CP Rail during 1987, an assortment of short-term leases could invariably lead to motive power combinations of the "anything goes" type.  This photo was taken on May 17, 1987, just one day after the picture which was presented on June 09/22 in the earlier "Rent-A-Wreck" post.
