CN 9903
Author: refarkas

CN 9903 was photographed on October 12, 1988. I have Pickering Junction, Ontario as the location, but I am no longer certain.

Solid shot, but I wish the trailing M-420 was on the point!

It has to be close to Pickering based on the high tension wires in the background more than likely from Pickering Generating Station (Nuclear)

I thought that these were in fact -60's.  Even though their builders plates state -50's?

Well a SD50 has a EMD 645 engine in it and while a SD60 has a EMD 710 engine.
So which engine is inside these beasts?

My answer to PHall's question. Because of the hybrid nature of 9900-9903 they were designated SD50AF/SD60F. They have 16-710G3 engines.

Wouldn't that make them SD60's?
