Ted Marshall General Really great catch Ian... Shots like this don't come around too often. Well done!!! 6/8/2008 11:25:24 PM
Jim Bruce General Acording to EMD and Trains Magazine the unit is called a GP22ECO and was CP Rail GM/EMD/CP GP9U 1637 before its rebuild to EMDX 7102. a similar unit, also a GP22ECO has been rebuilt from a KCS ex PC GM/EMD GP40. 7/28/2008 3:16:23 PM
David Porter General From what I've been reading lately, this is the future for the older 4 axle units. 8/4/2008 2:50:36 PM
David Stewart General Great catch & nice shot! I can't beleave they used a old short stuby GO9 to rebuild. You would have thought they would have chose something a little bigger like a 38 or 40, And plus as many 38 & 40 are on the used market. 8/13/2008 9:52:54 PM
Shawn Noe General They did one GP9 and one GP40 core. The GP40 core looks like it could be a lot more effective, if only because the GP40 core has a bigger fuel tank 9/13/2008 11:35:47 AM

Jamie West General @ David Porter: It may be the future of railroading all together! Great shot Ian! We have a few EMD F59PHIs here in NorCal (the San Francisco Bay Area to be specific) that have received the 710ECO prime mover! They serve on the Amtrak California Capital Corridor and San Joaquin routes. I have several photos of them before and after being repowered. 3/1/2012 3:48:35 AM
