CN SW1200 7029 sits on one of the switching leads along the southeast end of Mimico Yard, parallel to Drummond Street, near one of CN's old LCL/freight sheds.

Outflanked on the roster by the more popular SW1200RS model (that were equipped with road trucks and full numberboards for roadswitcher service), CN did have a handful of "plain" SW9 and SW1200 models built by GMD between 1952 and 1959. As-delivered, they wore the standard CN switcher livery of black with yellow letterbands, as seen here.
