Sorry, there is no map for this photo. Photographer did not add GPS co-ordinates. Please add next time or ask for a correction to this photo.

  1. Great scene. Note CN’s pair of 89mph geared GP40s, 9316/9317, paired with the GO units.

  2. I had the chance to run those CN 9300 class passenger geared units. They were awesome to have in my consist. I remember the Turbo having its own service track called the “Turbo Bay” The carmen told me that the brake shoes were changed out every round trip to Montreal and return.
