Pa. Tourist Railroad Repaints GP9u

Pennsylvania tourist railroad New Hope Railroad has repainted a locomotive that will pull excursions this fall.

Given the company’s corporate colors was GP9u 8678, a former Canadian Pacific unit that was rebuilt in 1988.

Railfan and Railroad magazine reported that for the past five years No. 8678 has worn a maroon livery. After being repainted it is maroon, black and yellow with “New Hope” lettering.

The railroad was formerly named the New Hope & Ivyland and operates from New Hope to Lahaska and Buckingham.

Information about excursions, some of which are puled by former Lancaster & Chester 2-8-0 No 40, is available at
