Prototype History:
The AC6000CW is a 6,000-horsepower (4,500 kW) diesel electric locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems. This locomotive, along with its direct competitor the EMD SD90MAC, is among the most powerful single-engined diesel locomotives in the world. The only diesel locomotive to surpass them is the dual-engine 6,600-horsepower (4,900 kW) EMD DDA40X. Just a little over 300 GE AC6000CWs were built for CSX, UP, SP and for BHP Billiton, an Australian mining company.

The GE AC6000CW was developed around the same time as both the C44-9W and the AC4400CW in the mid-1990s, and shares a number of components as well as visual appearance with them. General Electric worked in conjunction with renowned engine manufacturer Deutz-Motoren Werke Mannheim (MWM) of Germany to design and construct the 6,250 hp (4,660 kW) 7HDL engine for the locomotives. Due to several issues with this engine, the second run for UP was actuality delivered with the older, proven 7FDL engine, rated for 4,400 hp (3,300 kW). CSX later re-powered several of their AC6000CX with the more environmental-friendly GEVO-16 engine; these units are capable of 5,800 hp (4,300 kW) but are rated at 4,600 hp (3,400 kW) and classified as CW46AH.

The concept of a powerful single locomotive to haul a train was appealing on the paper, but revealed not to be successful, partly because of the technical issues encountered by these engines, and as well because actually two or more locomotives are globally more reliable in case one fails.

Road Name History:
The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), formerly also known as CP Rail (reporting mark CP) between 1968 and 1996, is a historic Canadian Class I railroad incorporated in 1881. The railroad is owned by Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (TSX: CP, NYSE: CP), which began operations as legal owner in a corporate restructuring in 2001.

Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, it owns approximately 23,000 kilometres (14,000 mi) of track all across Canada and into the United States, stretching from Montreal to Vancouver, and as far north as Edmonton. Its rail network also serves major cities in the United States, such as Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, and New York City.

The railway was originally built between Eastern Canada and British Columbia between 1881 and 1885 (connecting with Ottawa Valley and Georgian Bay area lines built earlier), fulfilling a promise extended to British Columbia when it entered Confederation in 1871. It was Canada's first transcontinental railway, but currently does not reach the Atlantic coast. Primarily a freight railway, the CPR was for decades the only practical means of long-distance passenger transport in most regions of Canada, and was instrumental in the settlement and development of Western Canada. The CP became one of the largest and most powerful companies in Canada, a position it held as late as 1975. Its primary passenger services were eliminated in 1986, after being assumed by Via Rail Canada in 1978. A beaver was chosen as the railway's logo because it is the national symbol of Canada and was seen as representing the hardworking character of the company.

The company acquired two American lines in 2009: the Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad and the Iowa, Chicago and Eastern Railroad. The trackage of the ICE was at one time part of CP subsidiary Soo Line and predecessor line The Milwaukee Road. The combined DME/ICE system spanned North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa, as well as two short stretches into two other states, which included a line to Kansas City, Missouri, and a line to Chicago, Illinois, and regulatory approval to build a line into the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. It is publicly traded on both the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker CP. Its U.S. headquarters are in Minneapolis.

After close of markets on November 17, 2015, CP announced an offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Norfolk Southern Railway, at a price in excess of the US$26 billion capitalization of the United States-based railway. If completed, this merger of the second and fourth oldest Class I railroads in North America would have formed the largest single railway company on that continent, reaching from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast to the Gulf Coast. The merger effort was abandoned by Canadian Pacific on April 11, 2016, after three offers were rejected by the Norfolk Southern board.

Paint Scheme:
Type 'CPR': Candy Apple Red, "Canadian Pacific" lettering with Beaver Logo on hood.
In September 1997, to properly portray its separate status and rekindle its heritage, CPR launched a retro-looking logo, complete with beaver, maple leaf and year of incorporation. The beaver and shield - adjusted slightly, with Canadian Pacific replacing Canadian Pacific Railway - was put in place for all corporate markings and was a symbol held in high esteem by employees.
First units repainted were AC4400CW #9581 and GP38-2 #3069 in September 1997. First new deliveries were AC4400CW’s #9583-9683.
