In today’s post we will take a look at the second half of the roster of GWWD 44-ton locomotives, specifically numbers 102 and 103.  According to the “Canadian Trackside Guide,” both of these units were purchased second hand.  102 had been built in 1945 as Swift and Company 400.  As part of the 1994 transaction it was sold to Ontario Southland Railway.  103 was assembled in May of 1947 as CN 7751, and was subsequently renumbered as 7550, then number 1 before its transfer to GWWD.  Its 1994  buyer was Port Stanley Terminal Rail.  

GWWD 103 sits with its mates at CP Quebec St yard in London on February 05, 1994.

GWWD 103 had been moved to the CP shop track in London by the time this image was exposed on February 19, 1994.
