Unlike most American railroads, Canadian Pacific’s GP9’s were built by EMD’s Canadian subsidiary General Motors Diesel (GMD) whose plant was located in London, Ontario. While built as road switchers, the GP9 found many uses on Canadian Pacific, from freight to passenger service. While not represented on this model, passenger-hauling units were built with steam generators which resembled torpedo tubes on the roof of each locomotive. Canadian Pacific opted to run their GP9’s short hood forward most of the time, and this is represented properly in-game. While construction on the GP9 started at EMD in 1954, it began at GMD a year later in 1955.
Much like Canadian National, Canadian Pacific rebuilt their GP9’s through the 1980’s with short hoods and used them as yard switchers. All of these rebuilds were retired as of 2015.
This mod includes asset versions of each locomotive, as well as multiple unit versions for double-headers.
