Variety!!!  The inbound motive power receiving tracks at the north end of Toronto Yard's diesel shop were always an interesting place back in the middle 1970s for you never knew what to expect.  Here is a good example and at that time all you had to do was sign a release, put on safety glasses, and a blue hard hat and the yard was yours to enjoy.  I was never into taking shots of lines of motive power, but I could not resist this combination.

  1. Georgetown GO service wouldn’t start for a few more days, so perhaps the new GP40-2W (outshopped from GMD sometime in January) was on loan to CN at the time. Even the C424 looks cleaner!
