Sources are reporting that CN is acquiring the former Oakway leasing SD60s in their next round of power acquisitions.

In addition, CN is acquiring more SD70M-2s, ES44DCs and more secondhand Dash-8s.

Hmm, actually the CN release says they're getting SD70ACe and ES44AC units. That's a first. CN's always been DC-only.

If this one winds up on CN I'll have to get a shot of it here at home!

I always thought CN would want to grab some of BNSF's SD75's... guess they're not on the block yet.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
