CN Jeeps

This just goes to show that all CN SUVs don't have to be Fords.

By Peter Mumby
Over the years, CN has operated a large number of "Geeps" - think GP 7s, 9s, 35s, 40s, 38-2s, and 40-2s.  But this CN Jeep was something new to me - apparently a new acquisition policy has been established within the last year or so.  Previously I had been accustomed to seeing CN SUVs primarily of the Ford variety.  Anyway, if you are attempting to keep your CN-themed layout up to date,  you might want to track down some modern Jeep models.  With all the commuting they'll be doing, you'll want your division superintendents and assistants travelling in comfort and style.

At the next train show, see if you can track down a model of one of these Jeep SUVs.  You'll want to ensure that your layout's assistant superintendent travels in comfort.
