Saw my first GP20ECO

(I don't know who is keeping track of when the new locomotives appear in different parts of the CP universe, but...)

I saw my first GP20ECO today (and didn't get the number: sorry!), so at least one has reached Edmonton AB. It was coupled to an older unit -- GP38-2, I think -- and doing some switching in the Edmonton yard,pulling cuts to or across the Argyle Avenue overpass this afternoon (30.v.2013).

I have read that they have CCB fake airbrakes. Must be fun to spot a car with. Luckily it is moot since the redheaded stepchild D&H will still have the ex LV 7300 class GP38-2 and 4650 class ex B&M GP40-2 in 2032, when I turn 60.
