Notes : Built by GMD as TH&B GP7 #72 (1950), acquired by CP, rebuilt with a 1,750 Hp. 16-567C engine block, chop-nosed and renumbered to #1682 (1987). Unit has no dynamic brakes. Retired (9/30/2011). Sent to SRY, New Westminster B.C., for parts salvage and scrapping.

 

* : Originally built as a GP7, this unit received a 1,750 Hp.16-567C engine replacing the original 1,500 Hp. 16-567B engine when overhauled and renumbered to #1682, technically making it a GP9u unit. CP retains the GP7u designation for the ex-TH&B units numbered in the #1682-1687 group.
