Throwback Thursday - SD75I

The conductor is returning to the head end of his train after making a lift at London yard on June 20, 2004.  ONR 2102 is adding a little colour to today's motive power consist.
By Peter Mumby.

The SD75I was a mid-1990s product of GMD/EMD.  Only three railways bought the model.  CN acquired the lion's share with 175 examples, while BNSF rostered 26, followed by Ontario Northland with 6 units.  Today's photo features locomotives from two of these three groups.  CN GF-643c number 5768 was constructed in 1998, while ONR 2102 left the plant in 1999.  The two units are leading a Toronto-bound train out of the London yard on June 20, 2004.
