The Cargill facility just west of Nesbitt Manitoba is home to a truly Canadian unit. CRGX 604 started out as NAR 402 before getting merged into CN and becoming the CN 5701. To accommodate the arrival of the current units occupying the 5700 series it was renumbered to CN 1651 in 1996. It was retired and sold by CN in 2007 to Progress Rail and quickly resold to S&S Shortline Leasing (SSRX). In 2015 it was sold again to Cargill and thus, ended up at this facility at mile 131.3 of CP's Glenboro Sub.
