CN Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its Privatization!


On November 17th 1995, CN’s shares were listed on the TSX and NYSE. Since then, CN has acquired the Illinois Central Railroad, the Wisconsin Central Railroad, the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railway, and BC Rail. Each of those railways, as well as the Grand Trunk Western, are represented by one of the locomotives specially painted by CN for the 25th anniversary of its IPO.

  4. So cool! I’m ok with what’s here. Not too overwhelming.

  5. Those came out quite nicely!

  6. It’s been confirmed that the decals were changed between the time this picture was taken and the time they were released in the wild.

  7. Very Nice Nicolas. Is you take the shot with the CEO standing out front as well for Railway Group News?

  8. Btw loving all the Colourful Heritage schemes. But where is Central Vermont, DMIR? Just nitpicking ;) Great shot.
