Only 61 years young when this photo was taken, ex TH&B #72 was chop nosed, re-numbered 1682 and received an upgraded engine block like CP's GP9u's making 1750hp versus the 1500 it previously had. It is shown in the track 5 east spot of the just completed rebuilt Diesel Shop. Notice how sparkling clean the concrete still is.

  1. One or the other. Let’s hope it’s the other.

  2. Could it be that it was the 1684 that was earmarked for preservation?

  3. Wasn’t this going to be preserved? That’s the consensus, but with good ole E who was in charge I guess he didn’t know. Lots of things good ole E apparently didn’t know.

  4. Sad to say it was sent to SRY in BC for parts salvage and scrapping.

  5. Was this rebuilt into one of those GP20C-ECO’s or did it escape and is waiting for the TRHS to come claim it?

  6. Thanks for your kind comments “Extra 1014″ :)

  7. Just like the NAR units that ran through Redwater AB, it is a little odd when you see a chopped CP GP with no dynamic brakes. Your shop shots are pretty terrific Paul.
