Wonderful Jack! I have seen shots of the geeps stored in Cumberland before and I never get tired of them, so much to look at! The triple X hoppers, the chop nose WM units, and if you look real close one of the WM slugs burried about halfway back in the third string from the left, not to mention a GP30 snuck in there! Thanks so much for posting it.

Nicely done, Jack... man those things seemed so common place at one point... how cool would it be to see one now? Thanks for capturing this sad, but fascinating moment.

On your picture, the GP9 were retired by 1983. 25 years later, the GP9 are still an usual catch in Canada, especially on the CN.

I was born and raised near Cumberland, and I remember seeing this very scene from the passenger seat of my mom's car. I was 4 years old at the time. The sight of all those old geeps lined up for retirement has always stuck out in my memory. What a neat surprise to find a photo of it 26 years later! Thanks for sharing.
