A questionable patch job is in the lead position of CN L529 with a much more attractive GTW 5849 second as they work the XTL Transport facility in northern Etobicoke. The 4908 here was built originally for the Long Island Railroad and was mainly seen in passenger service throughout its time there. Since then it has been a leaser for both LLPX and more recently GMTX, where it wore the number 2284 until being sold to CN within the past month or so.

  1. Questionable indeed. What a hack job that is haha. Do you know if they’re starting to do this to all the GATX units on the CN roster?

  2. Saw it today on 554.They must have a local kindergarten class do the paint. Boy is it ugly.
