The previous day, this train headed out with the 4808 leading. As luck will have it, they changed ends, rather than wye, and the 1613 lead the way home. The grain extra is passing through the small town of Radway at 11:00. The history behind the 1613, it started out as the 1036, re-built to the 1613, re-built again using the 4 wheel trucks and fuel tank from the 1133 to become the final number 1443 (re-built info from CNRHA). This was the one time I saw a 1600 on the Coronado. About a week later I saw it again at the Calder diesel shop, it was in a much better trio with the 1612 taking the 4808's place.

  1. Another stellar Coronado Sub. shot! I have a photo of that sandwiched CN 1070 when it was numbered CN 1170. I caught it sitting in a deadline at the ONR yard in North Bay, ON in 2004. 15 years after your above photo was taken! I’ll see if I can make it acceptable for posting.

  2. This is quite nice.

  3. Thanks fellows. :-)
    I want to know what’s with the cab windows? Somebody just put wet clothing on the heater? That is a lot of fog on them. I love the fresh new marker lights, no trouble seeing they are lit, even on this sunny day. The bright yellow re-railer is a nice tough too. It also has it’s own builders plate under the cab window.

  4. Very nice

  5. Thanks Steve. The stripes were fairly new at the time for the GMD-1′s, it was great having one go by. It was the exhaust stacks, I much prefer the 1070′s. :-)

  6. Those spark arresting mufflers were the coolest! Whether on the GMD 1′s, SW1200′s, or GP9′s without the stacks, they exemplify CN power from back in the day. :-)

  7. It’s funny how people go wild for stripes now.. and noodle is common again :)
