Looks like they are taking the long way around.

Wonder why they wouldn't go via Selkirk / Buffalo / Cleveland / CL&W?

Because selkirk is where locomotives go to disappear for a few weeks before being properly routed. :-D

Because CP is delivering the engines at Chicago by their choice as shipper.
