They are owned by a local rail company called Ontario Southland Railway. They have at least one more of them that is painted up in their colours, which is a red and white/beige. They operate in Southern Ontario. http://osrinc.ca/ (external link)

These locos gotta be from the 1950s. I notice too that they have no logos on them. You know anything about them?

I saw that picture yesterday, and it did not hit me they were old locomotives....

Good Grief Charlie Brown!!

It's a former Canadian National EMD FP9 built in 1958, the P designating is was originally built for passenger service. The main difference is that the passenger version was four feet longer to hold a steam generator and water.

Very Nice! Certainly a step up from the Colorado and SanSaba GP9 they used to have setting out there.

Nice shot of a Garratt.


It never ceases to amaze me how dense intelligent people are.
I’ve had more intelligent conversations with lobotomised amoebas.
