Remarks & Notes 
Due to high water from the flooding Mississippi River, the Canadian Pacific decided not to detour but instead push/pull trains through the high water. Although the water here is over the rail, it was low enough not to affect traction motors. This pair of SD40-2s are slowly moving north to grab the rear of the 273 train and pull it into the yard.
