CN train 383 has CITX SD60 6017, formerly a SOO Line unit, trailing. A healthy dose of spring rain has covered the area with thick greenery gradually making some clear shots here a mile 30 a lot more challenging. I’m going to miss the rainbow of leasers on CN once new power arrives.

  1. Cool catch Marcus, I’ve not had any luck with these repainted 60′s yet.

  2. I know some of the new GE’s #3800s are already on the property but not sure when leased power will be returned. I believe GE has the balance of this year for getting new units to CN.

  3. Nice catch Marcus !

    @ngineered4u- Do you happen to know how much longer the leasers will be around ? I know things can changed but I’m just curious. I’ve seen other’s have asked to on FB. And dates can changed.

  4. Sadly yes lots of GE’s on order :-( . 2626 is an older C44-9W. All the new units will be ES44AC’s I think.

    @Brad, yes thankfully CN is the last Class 1 operating GP9′s and GMD-1′s in service. They sure got their moneys worth out of those EMD’s. I bet no GE’s will ever last that long!!

  5. Lots of GE’s on order :(

  6. What’s the power…more GEVO’s? And i’m sure it will be in time for GEXR to expire :( But at least CN, the only class 1 I know of, will be running the GP9 rebuilds.
