Visiting the sprawling Symington Yards in Winnipeg many years ago on a most miserable rainy day (so what else is new?) I came away with the realization it was not an easy place to shoot. Sure, lots of GMD-1s around, and a handful of cab units, but I was pleased to see a couple of SW900 switchers.  I did not recall seeing a 7600 series switcher before. Not many around either. Six of this series of nine (7600-7608) were renumbered to the 400s in 1979.

  1. Ah, but Stuart; you should have seen the snowstorm that hit in foothills Alberta when I was coming home thru there on the 19th!!! Foot of snow, winter wonderland, and not a (bleep)in’ train to be seen.
    Winnipeg, well, rain. I expected it to be dreary. Its always dreary…but with mosquitoes.

  2. Winnipeg in late September? Surprised it wasn’t snowing!

  3. Glad you liked it! Seeing something you worked with on this site is special for sure.

  4. This one is really terrific Arnold and thanks very much for posting it. From my CN log books, I worked with the 7600 in the May of 76 at Edmonton (also the 7601). We were using them for light switching duties at Calder’s West tower. A nice stroll down memory lane. :-)
