Another unique TEST train was this one in 2016.. the ACR F40 would be enough, but a superliner? Yeah, everyone that was old enough and cared was out this day.. sorry young guys. CN 105 and all the other F40's are now off the roster, sold to WATCO. Also CN 105 didn't last too long and would have a multitude of other units attached to the train as it traveled from coast to coast. The addition of crew accommodations seems to have been made to try and accelerate the amount of territory the test train can cover in a certain amount of time, and now the new CP set (2022) has added the accommodations permanently.

  1. Great photo Steve…I know in SW Ontario, we had the ‘normal’ power by way of a CN unit. I caught the test train at Paris, ON.

    By the way….this photo looks very familiar. Did you post it previously here on rp.ca?

  2. Michael dacosta did. We were standing together for it. I waited 6 years to post mine

  3. Great catch for sure!
