Back in the days when visiting Hamilton's Stuart St when it used to be under control of CN and the (now demolished) little enginehouse was accessible; it didn't hurt to take a peak behind the place. Sometimes there was a fair amount of power hanging around. Here's a quiet Saturday view. Besides the CN 1346, an SW1200RS, we see 4 of the small GMD SW9 fleet, from left is 7001, 7002, 7009 and 7007. A dusting of late March snow makes the scene more appealing.........
The SW9s were renumbered to the 77XX series in 1985, all were retired by 1990.
