Throwback Thursday - Get On the Go

Three sets of Go equipment are spending the weekend in the yard at CP Guelph Junction on July 16, 1988.
By Peter Mumby.
Today's photo dates from July 16, 1988.  At that time Go trains were operating on the CP Galt Subdivision as far as Milton.  Since there were no facilities at this station for overnight storage, the equipment was deadheaded farther west as far as Guelph Junction after the last runs of the day.  Most Go trains followed weekday schedules only, so the Go 902/907/506 lineup would have been photographed mid-morning on a weekend.  Locomotive 506 was a model GP40TC, class GPE-30a, built in London in 1966.  902 and 907 were each referred to as an APCU, or Auxiliary Power Control Unit.  These had been rebuilt in the mid 1970s from Ontario Northland FP7A diesels.
