A Doug Lawson photo.
Former NAR GMD-1 311 has been renumbered back to it's original CN number after the Canadian regional property became 100% CN-owned in January 1981. These engines were all built new for CN with the A-1-A trucks for branchline service. 1072 spent time as NAR 311 from Jan1962 until Jan1981. It later became CN 1182. As was the classy touch of NAR, it carried the name TWELVE FOOT DAVIS. NAR named all of it's engines starting in about 1970 for local people and places. 1172 was retired by CN in Sept1999, was resold to a broker who then sold it to Southern Rly of BC, renumbered SRY 1205; in late 2014 it was sold by SRY to broker J&L Consulting and was deemed to be in poor condition, hence was scrapped.
