CN at Baraga MI on 8-10-12

I was leaving the Copper Country last Friday from a too short vacation, and caught these two CN units parked in Baraga. The crew was (I presume) on their rest at the nearby Best Western hotel. These 6 axle locomotives seem out of place on the light 85 lb rail on this branch line, but I'm sure the horsepower is useful when climbing the hill out of L'Anse.
Here is the "crew dorm". The crew has to walk across about 100 ft of field and US41 highway to get to the hotel from the engines.
