I believe everything in this photos is now gone: CN 5232 - the last active SD40 on the roster was retired next year, going on the short line circuit, to Athabasca Northern, then Central Manitoba, now Prairie Rail Solutions. Area railfans believe it to be the last non-upgraded CN SD40 left with the rest having been modified by KCS, BNSF and other new owners (or scrapped).
Despite being much younger CN 5297 merely outlived it by a year - presumably scrapped in 2007, though many of his brotherin are still on the active roster.
