Remarks & Notes 
CN 4147 shows off its new color scheme at North Kamloops, BC in August 1975. The unit appears to be a later model Geep, featuring a large winter hatch which would cover a single 48 inch fan rather than the older 36 inch ones. It's also capable of handling lighter trackage as noted by the small fuel tank. It does feature regular Blomberg trucks, while many sister units had a version used under SW1200RS switch engines.
