During 1994, CN had acquired 24 SD40-2’s from Union Pacific, that were originally numbered UP 4090-4102, B4103, 4104, 4106-4114. CN quickly temporarily renumbered them by changing the first number to a ‘6 from 4’ to cycle them into service. These units were seen all over the CN network that year and you would usually see at least one or two roll by during a full day trackside. Eventually they became CN 5364-5387 by late 1994 and through 1995 after being remanufactured at AMF in Montreal.

Here CN 6106 is viewed along with GP9RM’s 7040 and 7033 at the MacMillan yard diesel shop during a late summer morning. CN 6106 would later become CN 5373 in November 1995.
