On a summer 1971 trip timed to coincide with the NMRA Convention in Calgary, a stop by CN's Sarcee Yard in Calgary turned up this consist--"branch line" GP9s 4337 and 4287 (still in green and yellow!), and an unidentified F7A. I also caught an F7A-GP9 combination there, as well as some SD40s

  1. Great shot Doug! Interesting to find a green & gold Geep as late as August 1971. I think the last of the similar but narrow gauge NF110 & NF210′s made it as far as April 1969 and two of the G8′s made it to at least August 1978 here in Newfoundland.
