CP disposing of ALL former Soo Line SD60s
« on: July 03, 2013, 05:18:35 PM »
Canadian Pacific is disposing of the last of its fleet of former Soo Line SD60s and SD60Ms, offering 42 units for sale, lease or lease with buyout option. Thirty-three of the units were rebuilt between 2011 and 2013 at Cadrail in Lachine, Quebec, repainted in CP colors, and renumbered by adding a “2” to the number series. For example, Soo No. 6050 became CP No. 6250. They are part of an order of 63 SD60s and SD60Ms received by the Soo Line between 1987 and 1989, the last new locomotives ordered by the Soo prior to CP purchasing full control of the railroad in 1990. CP earlier returned to the lessor the other 25 units in the series.

"CP has been focused on getting more from our locomotives and cars. As a result, we are operating our railroad with fewer of both," spokesman Andy Cummings says. "That’s led us to seek expressions of interest for some surplus locomotives, including our SD60 fleet."

The locomotives are currently stored at several locations, with the main locations being Montreal (14), Toronto (7), Alyth Yard in Calgary (7), and Winnipeg (9).

Great Way to waist money...
What is with CP management, get rid of the older less efficient SD40s.

Nevermind the SD40-2s are much more reliable than any SD60 has ever been.

Well, I guess I would prefer to see SD40s stick around a while longer.

CN or NS would be the only ones interested in buying them, either that or someone in Brazil.
