Railink M420Ws 3502 & 3508

Ex-CNR MLW M420W road switchers in Hamilton, Ontario on Sunday January 27th, 2002.

Both 3502 and 3508 were built in 1973 and rated at 2000 hp. Between 1986 and 1987 there were renumbered from the 2500 series to 3500 series. By coincidence both locomotives were trucked into downtown  Boucherville, PQ in January 1998 for use as emergency electric power during the "Great Ice Storm" although 3508 was never utilized.

CNR sold both units to RaiLink in February 1998.  In June 2003 all of the M420(W) locomotives were re-sold to the Hudson Bay Railway.
