Alco S2 switcher

Seen in CP livery in 1974 and probably it hadn't been repainted since construction in 1946. 

This model was powered by an ALCo 539 turbocharged, 4-stroke 6-cylinder diesel engine rated at 1,000 hp (746 kW) feeding 2 x GE 731 traction motors on each truck (bogie). The S-2 was built between August 1940 and June 1950, with a total of 1502 completed
