So there has been some announcement recently that CN is rolling out some Heritage Units! So far people have heard about the
- GTW Heritage ( SD70M-2)
- BCRail Heritage (Gevo)

There is rumored to be 17 more painted.
Anyone can add to this topic when they hear about a new CN Heritage Unit!!

CN has introduced Heritage paint schemes which include 18 locomotives. Representations of the paint schemes worn by the railroads brought together through purchases and mergers, and will include previous CN schemes as well.

The first unit released was SD70M-2 8952 in a Grand Trunk Western scheme.
Two other schemes to released are ET44AC 3115 in BC Rail hockey stick and an unknown # ET44AC in Illinois Central Deathstar scheme.
