The ex GTW & IRRS EMD GP9 4519 was built in 1957. First numbered GTW 4919, the now Nelson and Fort Sheppard 4519, since 2012, is seen here shutdown in the siding at the Atco Wood Products mill in Fruitvale B.C. The mileage listed on the cross bucks at the entry crossing to the mill reads 149.91. At one time the unit delivered product from the mill to the U.S. border where there's a connection with the BNSF Nelson Sub. It might still but there are signs that the 4519 hasn't moved in a very long time.
