CN "Sweep" SW/GP

"All shots in major yards were done with a signed release and accompanied
by a friend who is a CN employee. CN today has a 'No-Tolerance' policy to
tresspassing; so NEVER try to enter a CN yard to take photos!"
7104 from series 7100-7107 remanufactured by Pt St Charles shops in Montreal in 1987.
The cab, frame and trucks are from SW1200RS 1248 the long hood came from a retired GP9.
These unusual 'Sweeps" (Geep + Switcher) are still active.
The 8 conversions are the only examples; probably not cost effective.
