seventies road power 

  
 four models, two builders
 
  
 and three of the four were delivered to the CPR in maroon and gray livery.
 
  
 SD40-2   CP Rail 5728  (GMD September 1975) 
 
   
 C-630M  CP Rail 4504  (MLW 1968 )

 On a warm, sunny , spring 1977 Sunday, negative by S.Danko
 
  
 What's interesting:
  
  
 the different types and locations:    classification lights,  horn,  radio antenna,  manual brake wheel / lever
 
  
 consistent location:   the bell,  dual sealed beam head lamp
 
  
  old and new versions:   CP Rail stripes
 
  
 and the one constant:   Canadian Pacific script  lettering on the Agincourt water tower
  
 
  
 CP Rail  regularly paired big six axle power with smaller four axle,( witness here the C-630M  /  GP35 lashup ). More:  
 
  
      M – F   lashup  
 
   
     M – RS   lashup  
 
   
     M – GP – M – C    lashup
