Nine miles south of Grande Prairie on CN’s Alberta Resources Railway, a saw and pulp mill of Proctor & Gamble Cellulose (now Weyerhaeuser) operated an ALCo RS-1 to switch their operations.

This unit has been preserved, painted as Great Northern 182, at the Railway Museum of British Columbia in Squamish.
