GMD Recollections - All in the Family

BN 9580 and mates are about to be added to a westbound CP freight at Quebec St yard in London, Ontario on April 01, 1995.
By Peter Mumby.
The BNSF merger was officially formalized in September of 1995.  At this time GMD was in the midst of producing SD70MAC locomotives for BN, and this run continued unabated after the merger.  These two photos bracket the 09/95 time period, providing before and after views of these units in their as-delivered appearance.

BNSF 9862/9864 are in the process of being placed on the head end of CN freight 511 at London East on December 31, 1997.
