Hours earlier, CN 1437 was working CN L566 as what I believe was the last GMD-1 in active service on CN. Used by CN crews in the couple days prior, the locomotive was dropped off around midnight on the 23'rd and later that day, WCR crews took their new locomotive for a spin for some photos and to try 'er out. I was able to attend and  get a guided tour of the new equipment along with the WCR staff. The locomotice was posed in a couple spots near Harvey H. Martin farm. Within months this unit would be repainted and re-numbered 1012.

  1. There is certainly not many photos of CN 1437 on the spur before it was repainted by WCR.

    Nice angle Steve.
