Someone passed along a link showing the scrapping of former NB Southern Railway GP9 3735.

NBSR 3735 started life in December 1956 as a GP9. It was built for the Texas and New Orleans Railroad as TNO 439. It became SP 3561 then in 1972 it was renumbered to 3735. In 1995 it was sold to the NB Southern Railway. They disposed of it in 2001.

It was delivered to Action Metals in Kelowna, BC at the beginning of March 2003, and was down to the frame by the end of the same month.
