I bought this slide off eBay a while ago, and wanted to share it with you. This shows extra 4483 West at Gloucester, NB just south of Nepisiguit Junction outside Bathurst. You can tell it is an extra train by the white flags on the lead unit. However, the slide says it was train #393.
CN 4483 was a GP9, built as CN 2012 in 1955 and quickly renumbered to 4483 in 1956. It was rebuilt in 1984 and became CN 4036, which is its current number. (thanks to the CN Lines CNcylopedia)
