Canadian Pacific has begun spring cleaning along the Galt subdivision. here we see the Herzog train heading west out of the dip in Hornby after crossing over from the north track to the south. Lead unit #187 is a custom built unit that appears to be built on a GP9 frame (I would love to know the history), the rest of the train is converted container flats upgraded to allow front end loaders to travel the length of the train. The train has been busy collecting old ties that have been discarded along the roadbed for a number of years.

  1. Thanks for the update, I couldn’t find too much on line :)

  2. Herzog has a couple of dozen of these ‘ slot ‘ sets, as they call them. And yes they are usually converted from switchers and geeps. Very few of the core units are actually known. Many were converted by RELCo at Albia IA and have small builder-style plates with serial numbers. But there is no reference to the prior identity.

  3. That is quite the conversion of an old GP9. The only thing left that suggests Geep heritage on the units body is the radiator section at the back. :-)
