    I saw a new ad for the Silverado (I think) - anyway it was one of GM's trucks. It was shot in a railyard, and there were CN locos in the background. They did not have the "noodle" visible anywhere, but they were carrying the zebra stripe and red cab of CN.

    Any one know anything else? I'm thinking maybe Oshawa...? Could not really find anything with a quick search at gmcanada.com .

    Hi Chris,

    I knew I could count on some information from you ;) ! I have only seen this ad once, and it wasn't until the end that I realized that I might actually know where it was and what was in it... lol...
