Initially, NS 327/328 seemed to operate with Norfolk Southern's six axle GEs exclusively, but eventually they showed up with just about anything. If they had stayed around long enough, perhaps we'd have seen NS heritage units up front, and to my thinking nothing would have been more appropriate than the Wabash unit.

  1. Very nice. That train would have been normal if the CP engine wasn’t part of the consist too!

  2. Nice catch, James. NS GP50′s weren’t exactly a dime a dozen round here!

    As for the CP leader, that was actually common around that time. IIRC, NS was testing two way SBU’s on 327/328 at the time, and was borrowing CP units as leaders instead of putting the correct gear in their own power. Can’t say if that’s 100% accurate, but I made a number of trips to Brantford around this time and 327/328 always had CP leaders on them. It was pretty annoying.

  3. CP leaders also pretty much eliminated the last use of the mainline NW and NS vans thru Ontario as well.

  4. Mike, I was only around 13 at this time but I too recall these trains always having CP leaders on them. My parents would take me to Brantford to watch the trains
