After viewing one of Arnold Mooney's most recent submissions of 4 GP40-2W's descending the Niagara Escarpment, I thought it would be cool to see that many GP40-2W's together again.  For a few short days CN L581 and CN L580 out of Brantford ran with 4 GP40-2W's.  My only chance was to photograph them in the yard at Brantford but I was happy with that.  Pictured CN 9543, CN 9675, CN 9482. CN 9473.

  1. And the collection of brooms on 9543. Can’t be too ready!

  2. Really nice shot Joe. Plus the three variations of CN paint schemes on the same model is neat.

  3. Ah yes, I DO understand, Mr. Smith. But, is it something I believe? Hmmmm……..
    These short days and lack of sun do not give us any time to do much other than work.
    Those who do work, of course.

  4. Jazzy indeed. CN 9675 has a lot of green paint showing through the worn CN paint. I’m looking forward to 6 months from now when I can grab a shot of 580 before work… BEFORE work Arnold.

  5. Great! That’s a lot of power seeing as back in the day two SW1200′s would have sufficed.

  6. Crazy.

  7. So you get what you want just like magic, eh? (The CN 9675 was formerly GO 708).

    Thats a jazzy shot.
