Nearing the end of a late winter's day, CP 8160 pauses during switching assignments at the west end of Galt Yard.  8160, along with two other GMD SW1200 units; 8161, 8162, were the regularly assigned power on the Grand River Railway/Lake Erie & Northern lines of Canadian Pacific, based out of the 1907 Preston Shops.  Note the striped plywood covering affixed to the front handrails, protection against snow entering the radiator shutters.  The 8160 would wear the Multimark paint scheme until 1989, when it would receive a new coat of Action Red sans Multimark.  The unit never made it into the 1200-series rebuild program, having suffered an electrical fire in 1992, it would be scrapped in 1993.
