In 1949, EMD found exactly what railroads wanted in its new General Purpose diesel with the unveiling of the GP7. The CNW was among the buyers who found them an ideal choice for passenger service, and purchased a pair of former EMD demonstrators in August of 1950. The units remained in service into the early 1960s.
