OSR is doing great. A number of power units have been repainted and the F series are on the schedule for a new colour scheme soon.

at least one of the F units has been stripped down ready for painting very soon

This thing turned up at Walker recently.

I'm wondering if anyone might have an idea who may have owned this locomotive before GMTX ended up with.

Usually Googling will turn up something, but, nothing for this locomotive. Pretty distinctive spark arresters, as well as that cab window.

I assume it's a SW1200, but, that's mainly from the fact it has handrails whereas the SW7 and SW9's didn't, but, they could have always been added on.

Judging by some of the early-style stanchions and barrel headlight conversion, it's probably an SW9. The side stanchions and handrails look home-made, likely not an ex-CN or ex-CP unit.

Works back to C&O SW9 5244. Has been bouncing around industrial operations all over the country since being retired in 1980.

It was stationed at a Cargill facility at Page, Manitoba. Having observed the Cargill loco at Cargill's Elm Creek facility an hour earlier up the road I guessed that 1502 was theirs too. As you can tell from the photo it wasn't obvious whose it was. The line is owned by CP, and I was sure 1502 wasn't a CP loco.

Well LLPX is now part of GATX Rail Corporation so it most likely on lease to Cargill
