Inside the shop at the sprawling CN Macmillan yard north of Toronto we see CN 3150 undergoing work. Hard place to photograph in back then, and not easy for a non-employee to wander around in either. This locomotive, an MLW RS-18m built for "Tempo" passenger service back in 1960, was retired along with its sisters 3151-3155 in 1983.

  1. Thanks for ALL the commentary here, Jakob.

  2. Yes they did – that’s the HEP generator being serviced. The short hood on the TEMPO units extended to the edge of the frame (there was no end walkway) to make space for the HEP genny.

    Also cool is the notation on the cab side for the 92 mph gear ratio.

    Mr. Mooney, you keep outdoing yourself with these photos.

  3. Didn’t these have HEP generators?
