Based on the flexicoil trucks, and half size fuel tank, I'm guessing this and its sisters were ordered for the real light rail lines; perhaps north of Stratford. I'm hoping those in the know will chime in with details of their service life.

  1. Looks like a typical, garden variety GP9 for the Edmonton area. :-) They were used here for many years until they were either rebuilt or did not meet the current standard of operational requirements. Paint looks recent on the 4246 and it still has a builders plate.

  2. I always considered the 4200s and 4300s as “western lines” engines. They were lighter, usually 225,000 to 230,000 pounds while the 4400s and 4500s weighed 245,000 to 248,000 pounds. There were thousands of miles of light rail on the prairies where these units prevailed. They did venture east from time to time. By the mid-1980s, as more larger power became available, they roamed the entire system.
