Maiden voyage? Maybe.  CN 5023 and 5027, elephant style, after being delivered in late December, are seen here switching at Aldershot East.  I photographed these units in London a few days before this picture was taken after they were delivered to CN from the General Motors Diesel Division plant.

  1. During this timeframe, train 478 was the preferred choice for new engine deliveries. I show 478 on Jan 3-68 with 5026-5027, shown in my notes as ‘new’.
    On Jan 11-68 I have 5028-5029 on 478.
    So this should help with your dating ( slides that is, not the social activity…)
