No more Alco's... again.

Looks like CN's selling off the RS-18's it picked up from NBEC last year... Road No's 1835, 1845 and 1856 are all up for sale on the CN website surplus list.

Along with a whole big list of IC SD40-2's... recently retired...

Glad to see CN is finally getting rid of those junk IC SD40s. Anybody that has been stuck on one of those pieces of crap for any time knows what I'm talking about.

Never had em leading, but the few I've had, they always had problems. Good riddance.
