London built CSXT SD70ACes 4838 and 4840 lead GEXR's #432 eastward out of Kitchener toward Toronto on a high overcast August morning. Units ran for a brief time over the line in order to get the 'bugs' out.There were about 20 of them built by GMD back then if I recall correctly. They certainly received a lot of railfan attention at the time.

  1. These units were just a few lost soles in a sea of GE’s.

  2. Timely photo as CSX has just sold all 20 of them to Progress Rail. Maybe they’ll be leased to CN soon! :)

  3. Nice shot! I miss the EMD test runs. I was lucky enough to catch a few as well :)

  4. And CSX didn’t like them as far as I know. CP was going to order some, but they could not handle the harsh weather of the hinterlands in Ontario. These trains ran with a GMD tech on them right?

    Am I right on those?
