We're at North Bay Yard April 2004 as I snap a photo of temporarily parked SD40-2's. If I understand correctly these units (the 1736 & 1731) are ready to be hauled into service if the need arises. However, those FP7au's behind them probably won't be seeing action anytime soon. The white handrails on 1736 were done as an added safety measure replacing the trademark yellow as you can see on 1731.
