Caption: CP GP9 8635 taken sometime in 1975 by unknown photographer.
In 1971 CP put three geeps through Ogden shops, Calgary and without upgrading them or repainting, simply chopped their noses. The other two, 8633, 8634, remained in red with the multimark, and in the script (respectively).
In the later rebuild program, these 3 were completely rebuilt and emerged as 1576 (8633), 1579 (8634) and 1580 (8635). The 1576 and 1580 were " trade-ins" for the CP GP20ECO program and were cut up; but 1579 still exists at Viterra, Kindersley SK renumbered 1319.
