Brand spanking new right out of the MLW factory in Montreal, two of International Nickel's RS-18s, 208-3 and 208-2, are being given the "once over" by Capreol's shop staff and the outbound crew.  These units which are dead in tow were heading to Thompson, Manitoba.

  1. These very late built RS-18′s that came long after MLW’s Century line began. They have many of their internal features and thus could be considered C-418′s. Built low nose inc. QIT 46 which recently was acquired by Sartigan, a small Quebec shortline that also has acquired all 4 of OS’s ex BC Rail M420′s. OS 183 long out of service.

  2. Nice shot! According to the Canadian Trackside Guide, Locomotive 208-3 was later acquired by the Ontario Southland Railway in 1995 and became OSRX 183.

  3. Now THAT is a remarkable image. Never seen these units before. Thanks for posting.
