Georgia Southwestern GP7u 2127 is pictured on the Goderich-Exeter Railway at Goderich in August 2002. 2127 started out as one of many of Santa Fe's GP7 units, and was later rebuilt with a "Topeka cab". After being sold off and working on GSWR, it arrived on the GEXR in 1997 where it operated in GSWR colours. After a few years of being out of service, it was scrapped in September 2008 with a number of other old GEXR units.

  1. Always liked these units but it appears they were not the best mechanically, the ones on the CBNS I believed spent a lot of time out of service as well.
