CN GP38-2 7501 is viewed from Toronto’s (Vaughan) MacMillan Yard diesel shop tower awaiting its next call to the hump as another 7500-series set can be seen in the background working the actual hump. To the left is newly built Orinoco Mining SD38-2TC 1048, which was on route from the GMDD plant in London to the AMF facility in Montreal, Quebec for contract painting. This was a mining railroad in Venezuela, that had eight units manufactured and painted in Canada, which were loaded on a ship in Halifax during June of that year to reach their destination. 

So the story goes, checking my notes, this photo was taken during a MacMillan Yard visit thirty years ago on Mother’s Day 1994. With that in mind, I wish a Happy Mother’s Day to every mom out there both here and now gone.

  1. Awwww.

    This is an excellent image and a now rare vantage point.

    7501 was repainted though

    and you got it trailing – it hasn’t led anything around here though

    I wonder if it was unsuitable for road service and sent back to the hump?

  2. Thanks Steve.

    It’s certainly cleaner looking almost 20 years later in Phil’s photo.

    It only lasted one day on L568! I don’t believe it has ever returned to Kitchener.
