Canadian Flag

The GP9 was introduced in 1954 as an improved version of the 1949 GP7s with more horsepower and improved reliability. Originally built with high short hoods and intended for operation with the long hood leading, they were modified between 1975 & 1987 with chop noses and configured to run short hood forward.
There were 206 active CP GP9s in February 2005. They are rated at 1750 hp, 1305 kW and ride on Bo-Bo trucks.
