The way it used to be: (well, for a few weeks at least until the GMD yard slugs were delivered) three GP38-2s shoving cars over the hump.  6000 HP doing the work of what 2000 HP used to do. The 200 had been reconfigured to run long hood forward for its new hump yard duties.  These units were built as 5541, 5552, and 5542 in 1973.  Subsequently, they were renumbered again to 7500, 7501 and 7502.

  1. Who reconfigured it? CN or GMD? GMD building yard slugs must’ve been easy for them.

  2. A number of these arrived in Calder yard in the summer of 78 too. They were not put on the hump right away but used for switching and yard transfers. Not the best for switching, we sure loved them on transfers. Power to spare. You could actually maintain track speed going from Clover Bar to Calder and back, nice. :-)
