Unread post by SD70ACe Fan »

Hey guys, I was just wondering, this is always been in my thoughts... what ever happened to EJ&E GP38-2 #703?? Did it get scrapped? Is it still around?

It's still around on CN. Usually seems to hang around Kirk and Markham.

IIRC the EJ&E GP38-2's had extra ballast (heavier) than standard 38-2's for better tractive effort.
