Canadian National SD40 #5062

Michael Taylor

February 1974 on a clear but overcast day. # 5062 and another SD40 crawl down the Dundas Hill surrounded by brakeblock dust and cross the bridge over Highway #8 just outside Dundas station.

This Canadian National SD40 was built in London, Ontario in 1968. It was powered by a 3000 h.p. prime mover and rode on a pair of 6 wheel trucks. Note that the CNR did not use dynamic brakes and thus the absence of the blisters on the top of the bodysides. Compare with CPR 5548
