In addition to the 100 or so lease units being added this month from CREX, PRLX and GECX, CN will receive 200 new Tier 4 and Tier 3 units from GE over the next three years. Although the fleet moves more toward that homogeneous state, this will probably spell the end of most of the second hand UP/BNSF junk fleet acquired a few years back. What is left of EMD can't be too happy. I'm wondering if CN has any thoughts of a 4 axle rebuild program for the GP38's that continue in local service? They're getting long in the tooth, and will need some attention down the road.
Go to CN's website for the press release.
