A motly crew of locomotives found at the CN Sarnia Roundhouse, the building leased to Lambton Diesel. We'll never see this group of locomotives together again as they're all out on assignments now. From left to right: In primer is GMD-1 JLCX 1201 (nee SRY 1202) which would be painted for CREWS for Johnstown Ontario and shipped off in a couple months - this locomotive was not owned by LDS merely serviced and painted by them. In green is SW900 LDSX 904 painted for Roslin Enterprises and now assigned to St. Marys Ontario. Former Esso/CN SW900 now LDSX 7920 is now in GIO Grey and assigned to Welland, seen here being prepared for paint. Former CN SW1200RM now LDSX 7316, pictured in LDS Black, was painted in that black scheme in October 2021. It only lasted in that paint scheme for 3-4 months. Within weeks they'd have it stripped to primer again and painted for a new customer, Nova Industries. In orange is SW1200 former Conrail, HBIX now LDSX 9359 (H. Brorer Equipment, a trackmobile dealer in Aylmer Ontario that owned one locomotive). The locomotive was sold to LDS after being stored at SOR/CN Hamilton then OSR briefly, and is pictured being prepared for NOVA paint. Both 9359 and 7316 are now assigned in shiny nova paint to Nova's new $2 billion Rokeby plant which is just beginning commissioning now. Rokeby is adjacent to the sprawling pre-existing Nova Corunna and shares a track and yard.
