MLW/BBDs of the Southern Manitoba Railway

The SMNR rosters M420 3518 (ex-CN 3518) and HR412 3536 (ex-BBD test bed 7000) for service on their line from Morris to Elgin, MB.

On May 20, 2000 3518 was not serviceable with obvious engine damage. 3536 is painted solid black and should be the lowest-mileage HR412 around.

Marc Simpson caught this furious departure of 3536 and 3518 from Morris, MB in late December 1999. Lots of moisture collected during the unit being shut down is vaporized mixing with the usual exhaust.
