SD40 and SD40-2

5647 with small Multimark

5780 new paint scheme without Multimark and with black stripes on rear of unit.
Ogden 10/12/1987 Bruce Chapman

Note: This was one of about 6 units painted with black stripes on rear of unit.
"Montreal" put a stop to this ASAP and ordered red stripes instead
(With Multimark no longer in use red stripes were adopted.)
NOTE: Unit was actually owned by Ontario Hydro! It was one of 16 Locotrol equipped units that were part of a
unique contract that ensured there would always be diesels available for unit coal trains from BC to Thunder Bay
where it was transferred to lake boats for delivery to Ontario Hydro generating stations.
When the contract changed CN took over 11 of the units. 5780 became 5389.

5907 with large Multimark
