Question about CN SD40-2w and GP40-2L(W)

Postby alexandre181 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 11:10 am

Hello

I know CN SD40-2w and GP40-2L(W) are almost all gone now... So I'd like to know if It's possible to find by someones of you or on the net a List of all SD40-2w and GP40-2L(W) Still in live/wreck/torch and/or retired?

I like so much these engines and I see almost never these engines in front of my house...
some pictures I share with you;

There is a lot of great information about the status of present and former CN motive power on the CNRHA CNcyclopedia site.

In the Vancouver area sets of 2 or 3 SD40-2W's are being used as transfer power, we also get a double set of SD40's on the Squamish yard. Great units for switching in Squamish. Perfect for shoving 50 pulp loads down to the Squamish Terminals. The GP40-2W's are being used more as road switchers now as CN retires the GMD-1's and GP9's.
