Proudly wearing "Canadian National Green", the 2300 West Control assignment with CN 7600 (was 4728) and CN 600 (was 503) stands in the clear on an overtime move as 385 departs and some trucks need to cross, once everything settles they'll pull this track out of the bowl, "down the Green" and shove it into a track at West Control behind for another Westbound train to grab later. Another day underway at West! I guess there's been some conversation about the green, personally I don't see what the fuss is about. I think this pair looks fantastic and it's caught my eye around the yard a few times now! Very striking and cool to see in person, a job well done by CN. Taken by an off duty employee while wearing all required PPE.

  1. This will certainly prolong the life of a unit with a standard cab. Works for me. :-)

  2. I have operated these units long before they became “Beltpacks”. I even had them in road service as the 5500 GP38-2 series.
    I don’t mind the colours, but I am not a big fan of the radiator grills. I liked the old ones better :-) I am happy to see my former employer finally paying tribute to its heritage!

  3. In the sun, the paint doesn’t seem to be as bright green as it was when it was brand new. Interestingly, it is turning to look more olive green like the original.

  4. Good point @kevin Flood. I was thinking the same. Perhaps there is some sort of ‘fade value’ in the chosen green on purpose for that reason?

  5. The IC set (7601-601) has been working nonstop since being released into yard service around Edmonton. The pair are proving to be quite popular with yard crews.
