Ontario Northland 1500-1521 are GMDD FP7A locomotives built from 1951-1953.

A total of 9 units were sold to GO Transit in 1973 and 1976; they were converted to Auxiliary Power-Control Units (APCU) to work with locomotives that were not equipped with HEP generators. Four units were renumbered to 1984-1987 and mated to the TEE trainsets to replace the problematic engines they were delivered with. A further three units were rebuilt with Caterpillar engines in the mid-1990s, and were reclassified as FP7Cat units.
