    Here is some pictures of one of the 41 brand new AC4400's CP Rail just bought. I got to take this one to Field the other day, it still had that, " new locomotive smell"!

    Thanks for the great photos - it's not often you get to see the proto in shiny brand new colors - or is that colours? wink, wink

    Thats one big beast Mike. How much horsepower does it produce?

    It's rated at 4400 HP, but when they are pulling a heavy load, I've seen the display go up to 4600 HP. It's really neat, it will tell you about everything the locomotive is doing.

    Love that CP Beaver logo. I just picked up two of the Kato AC4400s in CP colours. My ambition one of these days is to ride in the cab from Lake Louise, down to Field and on to Revelstoke. Ah, ain't it nice to dream.

    I found out that this unit was put into service on June 12th, so it is very new!

    Yes, I love that new/old logo too. So much better than the pacman logo they had before.
