After seeing Steve's recent shot of CN 9675 at Guelph on the previous day's L540, I was reminded of a photograph I took of the same unit the following day as it switched the Kitchener yard during the morning. It was noted that the unit's former GO Transit heritage was coming through on the conductor's side, so here is a close-up of that, as the green paint of GO 708 can be seen above the window as well as on the bell.

  1. Thanks Matt. It was switching around for a couple hours so I had time to check out all the details on it.

  2. Good eye! I never even noticed that GO green till I read your caption.

  3. @RLK2211- Thanks! Yes it is certainly weird seeing them on local’s today. Hopefully, another one will be assigned to Kitchener in the future. As you say, back in the 90′s you would never see them on any Guelph Subdivision local’s, just on the trains you noted.

  4. Cool pic….so weird seeing these units 21 yrs later in local service, before 98 we used to see them as regular mainline power on 431/432 and even 395 thru there.
