A pair of Ontario Northland F-units lead a northbound freight, stopped at CN's Barrie station on the Newmarket Sub in 1969. The power are back-to-back GMD FP7 units 1517 and 1502, both sporting the new "Progressive" green and white livery applied in 1966 (the third F-unit painted in this livery was 1521, but the units only lasted about six years in this scheme).

  1. Great image! if we could only recreate it today. At least the station survives.

  2. Remarkable image!!

  3. Though not a fan of this scheme, it’s still great to see a pair of them, even better on their traditional route down the Newmarket Sub. Love this!
