The face of the deceased. Built as RS18, CP 8746 in 1958, rebuilt in 1980 having it's nose chopped along with other upgrades is was reclassified as a RS18u and renumbered 1802, only to be converted to a "Control Cab" fifteen years later in December 1995. By 2002 it had been retired by CP, sold to OSR and moved to Guelph Junction. Today, as it has for close to a decade, the rusted and beaten, salvaged shell of an engine sits feet away from the rails where sister RS18u's ply the rails from parts she has given, so the vintage fleet of First Generation Diesel engines still live into the 21st century.
