Prototype Monday

Every Monday on the blog is Prototype Monday. That means I will post a picture of the real QGRY for inspiration. First up is a pic that I took last October 2014. QGRY 2007 was switching cars in the QGRY Trois-Rivieres yard on a beautiful fall day.

QGRY 2007 is a GP 38 (ex-PC 7676) built in 1969. The EMD GP38 is a 4-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between January 1966 and December 1971. The locomotive’s power was provided by an EMD 645 16-cylinder engine which generated 2,000 horsepower (1.49 MW). The company built 706 GP38s for North American railroads. In 1972, it was replaced by an updated model, the GP38-2.
