The Orangeville-Brampton Railway's Credit Valley Explorer tourist train operated for about 14 years, an interesting fact is an agreement between CP and the OBRY where in the event of mechanical issues CP would supply a loaner engine if the OBRY needed one. This did not happen often, but in 2014 CCGX 4009 was having problems and a substitute was required. The first one was, CP 8249, but after the GP9 proved unreliable, they assigned a brand new, pride (at the time) of the fleet GP20C-ECO 2267 with barely 1000 miles on the odometer. With repairs dragging on and a tourist train coming up on the schedule we had a fish in the barrel opportunity to photograph a unique move that to my knowledge , only happened this weekend.
