In the mid 1950s General Motors Diesel in London, designed and produced a handful of diesel-hydraulic locomotives. They were hardly a success. Of the GMDH1s one was exported to Brazil and one to Pakistan and one dubbed the "Blue Goose" remained in London as plant switcher. A GMDH3 model went to subsidiary McKinnon Industries in St. Catharines as their plant switcher. In this photo by Clayton Morgan, we see the Blue Goose at GMD London on November 21, 1959.

  1. And one to Kaybob, AB… http://www.railpictures.net/photo/344913/

    Nice shot!

  2. Thanks Tim. I never would have guessed one would last until 2010. Is it still running?

  3. As a teenager in the mid 1050′s I sat on the front steps of my parents house on Oxford St. in London Ont. & watched one of these locomotives cross over the CPR Thames River bridge. It was heading west at the time. Looked so modern in it’s shape, & with its blue & white colors. Great picture!

  4. You bet Doug, as far as I know it is still running today!
