While on a trip to North Bay Yard April 2004 I stumble across two units that once graced this website quite often. The rebuilt FP7au went from spearheading the Northlander trains, to Polar Bear Express/ Little Bear Service, to finally run second fiddle on Kap Sub freight trains. All due to the endless mechanical problems encountered once these units were rebuilt in the mid to late 90's. FP7au's 2002 and 2001 are seen here spotted with "surplus" SD40-2's 1736 & 1731 once it was deemed too expensive to repair these units. At the time FP7au 2000 was still running, but soon after found itself in the same predicament and shipped here.
