Review of Canadian Pacifics EMD Rebuilds DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
From 2013 to 2019, Canadian Pacific began an extensive program to update their fleet of aging EMD 4 and six axel power. In this C. Vision Presentation, we will look at these rebuilds in service on CP trains in Minnesota, all prior to the CP and Kansas City Southern merger. Included are SD40 dash 3's, SD60 dash 3's, GP20C Eco's, SD30C Eco's and SD70ACu's. The vivid red paint of these newly rebuilt locomotives shines bright for our cameras. Some of which display the Golden Beaver logo. We also caught 6 of the 10 ACu's painted in CP's original Tuscan and gray paint scheme. Canadian Pacific painted 5 of the ACu's honoring Canadian and US military forces. We were able to catch a couple of these locomotives, including CP 7020 that wears North Atlantic Treaty Organization green, and 6644, adorned with the camouflage colors that were applied to Royal Canadian Air Force "Spitfire" fighter planes.

You will love the sound of these EMD's as they tackle several grades in the Twin Cities area
