Notes : Bio-diesel test unit. In total, 6 AC4400CW units are testing with Bio-diesel fuel during the winter season of 2009-2010, mainly between Edmonton, AB., and Calgary, AB. Unit #9727 and 9731 were partially repainted at Calgary, AB. (11/2009) and lettered "Powered by Biodiesel blend - Canadian Pacific", with the addition of a small Government of Canada logo. At the end of the test, the units were put into regular service with BioDiesel decals removed, leaving the Canadian Pacific lettering in place.
