Not many of CN's SW1200RS got repainted with the 1993 scheme, but CN 1348 is one of them. Yard engines got the 1993 CN North America scheme minus the grey continent. However mainline locomotives did not receive the continent emblem either after 1995. 
The way I heard it, not enough people recognized the (slightly stylized) outline of the North America continent, while quite a few thought that the emblem was the result of black paint peeling off.

  1. Yes the tubular exhausts stacks from the front spark arrestor are a rarity. Spark arrestors used to be fitted throughout the CN GP9 and SW1200RS fleets. I suppose somewhere, sometime there might have been a fire started in a field or the woods that was blamed on a diesel locomotive. But maybe it was just the government railway spending extra dollars to to reduce fire risk and noise. Apparently it was not enough of a concern to CP whose similar locos never had them. Whereas rail grinding operations routinely cause unintentional fires along the railway in dry conditions (and have water tankcars and firehoses to put them out).

  2. I am very used to seeing the inverted cones on the spark arresters. The cylindrical shape is something quite unfamiliar. Cannot remember seeing 1300′s like that out west.
