GO TRANSIT CAB CARS


CAB CARS 200 to 257 - EXTERIOR DETAILING TO CURRENT (2016)


Not included with my published article in Branchline Canada’s News Rail Magazine, March 2006, is the following chart plus ongoing amendments. Before GO began rebuilding and refurbishing their Cab Cars, many of the following “oddities” and “differences” below existed making each cab car unique. But after 2006 or so when the rebuilding/refurbishing programme was completed, GO had standardized the exterior of their cab cars. (Photos added here to highlight some of the oddities/differences - see notes below)


NOTE: Many of the 200 series cabcars (200-257) are now being retired and being used as regular commuter coach (aka: caboach) - [ link to the caboaches ]

PHOTO NOTES: (see other photos in cab car photo gallery)


P1 - GOcc200 - note grey electronic bell, whistle brackets, bug screens over whistles, white handrails over a full green background panel, red class lights only, pulsating ditch lights, two safety stickers, regular size number boards, small pilot, sealed conductors windows second level, no passenger step lights


P2 - GOcc206 - green whistle, no whistle brackets or bug screens or rebuilt as yet, the beautiful timbre of a brass bell painted white, regular number boards with full green panel background, no lift rings


P3 - GOcc210 - example of the sliding mirror - replaced quickly as visibility to rear of train was poor


P4 - GOcc219 - electronic bell installed before rebuilt/refurbishing - main note is 219 is coach one in the consist (not commonly done but happens from time to time with others like 206, 210, 212, 222, 241, 251, 252, 254 etc)


P5 - GOcc229 - new electronic bell painted green, GPS antennae on north back of bell frame, two whistle brackets, two diaphragm lift rings, six screw bolts for regular sized number boards

P8 - GOcc241 (2006) - the strip missing has finally been added (Dec 2005) - also now with electronic bell, safety stickers

P12 - GOcc251 - car number one in consist (similar to GOcc219 above)
