A SD70ACe-P6 demonstrator unit from EMD for CN, the second after class leading 8100, is solo on train Q10531 heading to Calgary Alberta, passing under the Hilda Avenue bridge with solid containers in tow. Class leading 8100 has recently been painted into a CN scheme, and rumor has it 8101 is next. It was cool to catch this unit leading a train still in its blue colors before it gets repainted. This was probably the one and only time I get to see one of these lead a train.

  1. Maxim – Containers, not crates.

  2. No only a single unit. Very common on CN trains. The power is matched by horsepower to tonnage ratio.

  3. Maybe, they may have switched it out at a yard along the way or added more power as they may have picked up more crates later on.

  4. Lots of pics of this unit lately. :) Just the single unit all the way to Calgary?
