For a while the 9100s were plentiful around Toronto, but before you knew it, they were gone.  Every railway seems to have a locomotive that fails to meet expectations - I guess this was CPs.

  1. Mike – I believe 9108/9157 were allowed to continue due to having a non expired “blue card” with the others all expired, thusly could not operate into the US in the lead position.

    At least that’s how I understood the reasoning as it was explained to me.

  2. I know two of the ones that made it to 2014 were 9108 and 9157, largely working off HPH to NS, iirc. Both Winnipeg as of Dec18… assume that is 2014 and not 2015.

    They’re unique, but fugly. I’ve got my pictures so I won’t miss them. With crude shipments the way they are at present, I’m not expecting that rebuild program to ever happen, even if it’s still on the books for when traffic rebounds. Nice to be wrong, though.

  3. At least a few hung on into 2014.. and early 2015.. not sure if they are still active though

  4. I wonder much the same. Did they hope 2 units would get a grain train over the Kicking Horse? CP has always been too much of the same thing; SD40′s then AC4400′s. It was always nice to see something just a little different.

  5. The SD90… one wonders why usually conservative CP went with the untested model when the successful SD70MAC was available? If suppose they figured the 4300hp SD90 would be mechanically an SD70MAC, so why worry.

    Still, more interesting than the AC4400.
