This is a photo captured at North Bay in September 2005 of a unit that, until now, has never appeared on onrgallery.com. Classic GP9 1604, built in 1957, and having her high nose chopped in the mid-70's when the "Chevron" paint scheme was introduced, is one of two GP9's to have this cosmetic surgery done. For many years, these units (1600 & 1604) haven't seen the world outside of North Bay Yard, until now. 1600 has been seeing life outside of North Bay when she was sold and shipped up north to Abitibi-Consolidated's Pulp & Paper Mill in Iroquois Falls to assist their Ex-CN SW1200 (See a photo of 1600 in Iroquois Falls HERE ) in October 2005.
