CN No. 2106 was constructed by BBD in early 1982. The burly unit is shown leading Conrail C40-8W No. 6126 past a solid string of autoracks, most likely staged for the nearby Ford Oakville plant. Unlike the EMD F/FP45 units from the mid 1960’s, the reincarnated cowl structure was more than cosmetic. Fitted with access doors, routine maintenance was entirely feasible. No. 2106 was among the longer serving HR-616’s and would depart the roster as part of a sale of several sister units to National Railway Equipment (NRE). A number of the HR-616’s would linger in storage for years at the NRE facility in Silvis, IL.
