    Question Canadian Pacific's Standard-Cab Rebuilds

    The most underrated locomotives I have ever seen are CP's ECO-series locomotives. The SD30C-ECO's prime mover is a 12-cylinder EMD710-G3A (T0+) placed within a rebuilt SD40-2 body with flared radiators. The GP20C-ECO's prime mover is an 8-cylinder EMD710-G3A placed in a rebuilt GP9 locomotive with a newly-designed car-body.

    Prior to Christmas of 2014 I caught a GP20C-ECO leading the CP Holiday Train on the ex-SOO Detroit Lakes Subdivision.
    A few days ago a friend caught an SD30C-ECO leading CP 492 on the BNSF Hinckley Subdivision.

    With all due respect, I figured somebody could work on their own version of the SD30C-ECO or the GP20C-ECO for Open Rails. Anyways, CP needs a little recognition for bringing rebuilds to life.

    Best Wishes!

    Or this one?

    In 2015 TigerTrains offered the CP Holiday Train with a GP20C-ECO as well. It was a seasonal release, of course.

    I noticed TS and TMT had created the Geeps, but what about the SD's?

    The SD set is also on the TS site, in the MSTS section.

    This was the last set made before they moved to the OR platform.
