The ALCO  doing the switching, Canadian built? Comparable to what EMD GP locomotive?
The BCR Red, White, Blue road units - also ALCO? When were they built? Still in service?
Just curious...

The 607 is an 1800 HP Montreal Locomotive Works built RS-18 (based on the designs of the ALco RS-11)
The S407 (blue slug) paired with the 607 is a slug (no prime mover) and was built from a cut down RS-3
The red, white and blue units in the background are General Electric built C40-8M's

Very interesting, Trevor. Thank you for the information - I figured that
someone on TO would know.
