Well, this edition of the "Starlight" certainly was a surprise--powered by a pair of Lake Superior & Ishpeming U23Cs. Over the winter of 1969-1970, according to the UCRS Newsletter, CP leased three of these units (2300-2302) and based them out of Winnipeg...so catching them in southern Ontario was definitely unusual!

  1. CP leased LS&I units from 1965 to 1972 with the exception of winter 1967/68. The first number of years were RS2′s, RS3′s and RSD12′s; the final couple of years were all 5 of their U23C’s, 2300-2304.
    1970 was a real good year for leased power, from these to IC C636′s and all manner of other junk.
    I have a feeling we’ll see some other dandies from Mr Page’s travels.

  4. That is spectacular! I had no idea CP leased LS&I units. Fantastic photo Doug.
