The GMD shop crew takes their latest freshly-minted unit, GO Transit F59PH 566, out for a spin on the test track near the GMD London plant along the CP Galt Sub line to the south. Part of GO's final F59PH order of 7 units numbered 562-568, 566 would only haul GTA commuters for two years, until cuts lead to GO selling off four of its units to Texas commuter rail startup Trinity Railway Express in 1996. Today, GO 566 still operates for TRE as their TRWX 124.

*For more info on the F59PH, I've written a brief "Master Class" for Rapido Trains in anticipation of their upcoming model release: https://rapidotrains.com/master-class/diesel-locomotives/gmdd-f59ph-master-class.

  1. You really need to keep these coming. It’s a very rare glimpse now of what was.

    Must’ve been a nice day for the window to be open AND wearing short sleeves.
