Remarks & Notes 
A visit to the Vancouver, BC area netted this pleasant surprise, a pair of rare NW5s handling yard switching duties in New Westminster yard. These 1000 HP switchers were part of an order for 10 by Great Northern delivered between December 1946 & February 1947. Three more were built, two for Union Belt of Detroit, one for Southern Ry. GN 192 is preserved in Duluth, MN at the Lake Superior Transportation Museum.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
