  1. IC 3138 GP40R

    IC 3138 GP40R

    First time I've seen one of these through town, although it makes sense given the GT & WC Geeps coming through. With so many retirements CN is mixing up all the predecessor power to fill in the gaps. 18 of these units were sold off in 2000/2001, in turn re-built into the LLPX 22xx GP38-2...

  3. Morning IMS

    Morning IMS

    CN 104, with a pretty crappy consist, is leaving the city, with competition (CP 104 naturally) only a couples miles back. Note the web patch under the CN NA logo, first time I've seen CN squeze one under there! Oct 31 '07 9:11am CN 104?, 147 cars CN 2517-5722 (CN NA + web - web) 61...

  5. Last Canadian Safety cab

    Last Canadian Safety cab

    More then 30 years ago CN invented the Canadian Safety cab, which has created such oddballs such as the GP40-2L(W), SD40-2(W) and the GP38-2(W) that don't look even close to their regular versions. Don't forget that draper tapers, namely Dash 8-40CM, SD50F, SD50AF and SD60F have this cab as...
