Ontario Northland
NORTH BAY, Ontario — Add Ontario Northland to the list of railroads with heritage units.

On Thursday, the regional railroad rolled out rebuilt SD40-2 No. 1730 as it appeared in 1972 when built by EMD.

Said the railroad: “As Ontario Northland moves forward, it is also important to recognize our past. We are pleased to unveil our most recent locomotive rebuild, an EMD SD40-2 painted in our heritage livery just as it appeared when it was first delivered to Ontario Northland in January of 1972. Our skilled tradespeople have overhauled and modernized this locomotive so that it will continue to pull freight efficiently for years to come. At the same time, it will serve as a proud reminder of our railway’s rich history and place in the development of the north.”
