MLW Monday, CPR RS-10
Author: EL833

A July 1979 trip to Canada found me in North Bay, Ontario for a few days. The CPR yard and engine house area near downtown was packed with a variety of units including this set of power with RS-10 #8465 on the west end. Technically this is the rear of the unit as these were set up to run long hood front. The large Multimark and a high short hood full of stripes made for a neat view regardless. I hear this area has changed a lot and these rail facilities along the waterfront are all gone now. The 8465 was retired in late 1982 and scrapped.

Nice engine terminal scene.  Looks like two GMD's hiding among four MLW's.
Thanks for the photo post.

North Bay WAS a great spot to railfan, with Via, CN, CP, and ONR!

It’s entirely possible 8465 and the GP9 further back with the roof torpedoes are stationed as protection power for The Canadian incase of engine failure.
