Ive always had a fascination with this pair of locomotives. Back in the early 2000’s I remember picking up an issue of CTC Board magazine with a two page spread at the back dedicated to these two units when they were in full SOO Line paint. I never could have imagined back then that these two units would end up so close to home. After their arrival I devoted a lot of time chasing down the SOO sister 7’s. From Clarkson to Guelph Junction and later Salford. I miss seeing this pair out on the road as they typically these days call the shop at Salford home and only see action as backup power when other chop nose units are not available.  This day the sisters were out on a run to the potash facility in Putnum. Here they are seen on their return trip to Ingersol  where they will collect the rest of their train and head for the CP interchange at Woodstock.

  1. Nice. I like the mid-nose headlight placement.
