Canadian Pacific Railway
EMD E8 2250 hp 85 mph A-1-A A-1-A dual steam generator
Designed strictly for passenger service these units had no traction
motors on the middle axles.
E8 2250HP 1802 one of only three CPR units of this model.
It is from the pre-GMD era. EMD #8682 12/49 Ron Visockis
Note: 1802 was the last diesel painted in the old block lettering
and colours which was after the new CP Rail Action Red paint scheme was
introduced. This was done for a railfan excursion chartered by the St.Lawrence
Valley Railway Society, a small Montreal group obviously with some real
"pull" at CPR headquarters in Montreal!
Train order for meets with all
of the 1800's!
Note: Above diagram of E9A unit is similar to E8A
