A pair of freshly painted RS-18m Tempo units with Tempo coaches approach Bayview Jct.  The short hoods of these units were extended to house the Head End Power equipment. Interestingly, when these units were converted, they were initially painted in the CN green and gold paint scheme.  They sure looked nice and shiny.

  1. Found one picture of a unit in green and gold. I am sure I have another one that wall fully painted and looked real nice. Here is the Tempo before Tempo paint job.

  2. Steve, I believe they were painted in the Tempo scheme before entering service. I have a couple of shots of the short hood in the green and gold scheme. Will have to go searching for them. Will post them if they are good enough pics.

  3. Oh my. This is very nice.

    I’m curious, Dave, did the Green and Gold enter service and/or did anyone get photos of these painted before the Tempo scheme came out?

  4. I worked on one of them at PSC shops in 1968,an engine was put in the lenghtened short hood for the HEP.

  5. CN did do test runs with the trainsets for a while before going into full service. Not sure what date Tempo service began.

  6. Very interesting photograph! This appears to be a test train, note the white extra flags on the lead unit, with the new Tempo equipment, perhaps for crew training. Train has two of the original 5 car sets coupled together, perhaps for the first time. Cars were delivered starting in April of 1968. When did actual Tempo service begin?
