CP Rail SD40-2 Question(s)

Post by XC Tower » Fri Jan 25, 2019 3:28 pm

At one time, the CPR had a sizable fleet of these workhouse EMD’s. How many remain on the roster? Also, is there a way to track the disposition of those units now retired?
Thank you for any help.

There were 28 active SD40-2s, 10 rebuilt SD40-3s, and of course the 50 SD40-2s rebuilt to SD30C-ECOs. There are about a dozen stored SD40-2s.
