Paint Data : CP Rail Large Multimark, 8" stripes > CP Rail no-Multimark* > CP Rail Dual Flags

 

* : Outshopped in August 1987 in CP Rail no-Multimark paint, but with Black & White rear end stripes. This treatment was found on three CP SD40-2's (#5601, #5653, and #5780). This was the result of the units being inside the Ogden paint shop when the Multimark was discontinued on August 11, 1987.

 

Notes : Formerly owned by Ontario Hydro. Transferred to CN (5/1996), became CN #5389. Re-acquired by CP (11/2000), and renumbered to CP #5389.
