  1. Curious why so many outside the fence though? Was it not open to anyone?

  2. I wasn’t aware of the FT’s making it up to the London plant. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. The June 16, 1990 GMDD event was a full open house, General Public invited with guided tours included. Inside the plant (no pics allowed) that afternoon were BCR electrics (at least two) under modification and several export units in various stages of assembly. The pic is after the 2+ hour tour and after close inspection (cab tour of the 119 included, look closely in the pic for ‘tourists’ near the cab) of each of the ‘demo’ units seen in the pic. By that time we were all ‘fried’ with the 90F heat of that day! A bunch of Leaside fans (LLL) car pooled to London. I took my 3 year old son that on the morning VIA (LRC) to London where the Leaside fans picked me up in my own GM – a Parisienne wagon. Quite the Day! sdfourty

  4. So much quality in the photograph….. GMDs are the best locomotives I’ve had the pleasure of operating bar none

  5. Thanks Steve. I enjoy this scene immensely.

    I had two tours, once in 2007 and once in 2011 and was allowed camera (had a photo pass and h&s badge) but a couple things were not allowed to be photographed. But everything else was fair game.

  6. Hey Steve;is that you in the purple shirt? Bruce

  7. I’m digging that brass bell on the 2F. When I went there in 2007, it was far different. They had an Alaska Railroad SD70MAC-HEP out front, along with a SD70M-2 for CN. Inside the plant were both JT42CWR’s in embryonic form, as well as SD70M-2′s in the 8800 series in various states of construction. One of those was in the paint shop without the http://www.cn.ca address on the long hood.
