Cartier GP-9's
Author: M-420

In November of 1986, I stopped for a short time at Port Cartier, PQ. While there, I grabbed this image of stored QCM GP-9's near the Cartier's engine facility.
All of the GP's had been laid up and they had clearly been laid up for quite some time - only a few had received the then-standard Orange/Black paint scheme.
I believe these were the first low-nosed units manufactured by GMDD.

This was the only time I had ever seen EMD products set aside instead of Alcos.

Note the stamped metal herald, road name and road number.

They can compete with ugliness with the Talgo cab cars.

I think the very worst appearing were the geeps that WM chopped to low nose.

Those low noses were quite high, right?
