Here, CP train 440 departs the Cartier station southbound with CP 9301 and 5958 after a fresh crew had boarded. CP 9301 was a large SD90MAC-H, which was part of a group of four built by GMD in 1998 and delivered to the railway in the beaver scheme. The original order of this model was for 20, however it decreased to only four after problems and reliability issues began to persist the model. This continued unfortunately through their entire careers. In the end, a failed main generator had sidelined 9301 and it was retired in November 2008 eventually being sold to RB Recycling in December 2010 after sitting stored unserviceable in St. Luc yard. According to reports, 9301 was scrapped in 2011 and became the last of the model to exist prior to being cut-up after its relatively short life.

  2. Thanks for the link Michael. Crazy to think that was just over a decade later from this photo.
