Looks like 1501 to me.

In case you're wondering what the logo is below the radiator shutters, CP put these on some yard units for Agincourt Yard to mark 'Toronto Yard 25 CP Rail'. This earlier Geep rebuild was done with Multimark (5/86 photo), lost that and gained the logo you see in the photo, and the logo was gone by 7/97 (photo).

Thanks Fred for the added info re: the herald on the car-body..

Bob, thanks once again for posting a great photo.  1501 was rebuilt from former CPR GP7 8409 that  was built by GMDD London, ON.

The handrails hide most of it, but I was able to find the remaining lettering, on heralds applied to the SW9u units in the low 1200 series. On the left is 1964, on the right of the 25 is 1989, both horizontal, rather than wrapping around the broken circle.
