These "yellow" units really did not spend much time on CP before either being painted over or dealt off. They were former GATX units, leased by CP to the D&H (STLH) and eventually purchased by CP.  This particular one, CP 5430, was former GATX 2008 and a year after this image was taken was sold to Livingston Rebuild Center and became LLPX 4406, which I did catch leading a train on the Galt sub a few years after.
There were 10 SD40-2s leased from GATX (2000-2009) in 1991 and then purchased in 1994. I'm not sure how many actually made it to CP red.
Second unit on this #327 auto parts train, Buffalo to Talbotville, is #5577 and the train is just coming off the Welland Canal Bridge 6 on a rather dismal looking morning.

  1. Very cool leader.

  2. I shot one of these in 2004 coming off the Hamilton sub leading too!

  3. Just imagine what the livery would look like if a UP / CP merger…..

  4. Nice photo!! Seaway is a classic spot here yet hardly shot

  5. @sdfourty I guess the name of the merger would simply be ‘Pacific’. ;)

  6. Arnold;Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Maybe this year we will see each other at the meetings.

  7. Thanks Bruce!!! Hope we get meetings in person sometime early 2022. Fingers crossed.
    And of course the best to you !!

  8. Arnold, what’s the scaffolding for in the background if you remember?

  9. I was wondering about that myself. Sorry. No idea.
