CN 4700
CNs first GP38-2 is in good company: trailing a GP40-2LW (currently oldest on CNs roster) followed by a GP9RM predecessor. As you can see with each generation the cab gets bigger LOL. Sadly the GP40-2LWs were the last new Geeps on CNs roster.

I suppose these units are assigned to Eastern Canada?
Nice catch, Roman.

"I suppose these units are assigned to Eastern Canada?"
Some of them show up out here in Saskatchewan. They have alot of them in Vancouver, too.
The last CTG to show CN allocations (2004):
Vancouver - 3 units
Edmonton - 2 units
Toronto - 3 units
Montreal - 14 units

Definetelly more Eastern then Western units.
We've got 4 in Vancouver. 4702,09,16 and 18. Lots of GP9RM's, and a handful of GMD-1's and SW1200RS's.
