This slide by Gary Zuters features CN 1913 (and CN 1901) in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It was shot in September 1979.
CN 1913 was a GMD1 built in the late 1950s. At the time it was built with four-wheel trucks and it was equipped with a steam generator in the short hood for passenger service.
In 1989, CN 1913 was rebuilt into CN 1402 and is still working for CN.
CN 1901 had the same origin, but it was not rebuilt. It was sold to National Railway Equipment and I believe it is still being leased out for industrial use.
