    Have been searching on the net... can someone point me to a site that would give dates on when each model of EMD GP was manufactured? Or if someone knows offhand, you could post it for me?

    I can't say exactly when each model was debuted, but I have some small notes which may give you some idea of when they were shipped from the Canadian division of EMD -

    a GP-7 unit was delivered to TH&B in 1950
    a GP-9 " TH&B in 1954
    a GP-30 " CPR in 1963
    a GP-35 " CPR in 1964
    a GP-38 " CPR in 1970
    a GP-38-2 " CNR in 1972

    and, in 1966, the Ontario Government took delivery of a GP-40

    My notes end in 1974

    Hope this info is what you need
