Wandering around the edge of Symington Yard many years ago I felt lucky to capture this GMD SW1200RS in the green and gold; a dress I never did see enough units in. This CN #1354, according to the Trackside Guide, was wrecked in 1983. I wonder how long it kept this gorgeous paint scheme?

  1. You’ve got that right. Just like Tuscan & Grey for the CPR and the Lightning Stripes for the D&H and the War-bonnet for……….well, you know what I mean.

  2. This is the proper CNR paint scheme.

  3. I remember seeing 1387 in Sioux Lookout in May 1978. I also shot GMD1 1040 in Prince Albert in may 1981 and 1063 in Regina in August 1983, both in green and yellow.

  4. Not sure about 1354, but there were a bunch out west based out of Edmonton that lasted into at least mid-late 1977 (if not longer) in the old colours: 1344, 1372, 1373, & 1379.

  5. Pride in the Paint. Thats what it used to be all about.

  6. Great to see this image Mr. Mooney! As you know, I love that paint scheme!
