Ogden's 75th. anniversary was held in 1988.
To commemorate the event, Odgen Shop employees decided to assemble a lasting monument.
Originally called "Oggie" (for Ogden), the monument has since been renamed SPIKE.

SPIKE  is 27 feet tall and constructed from various pieces of freight car and locomotive parts.
The body is a boiler, the head and ears are gears and the arms and hands are couplers. 
He is holding a locomotive engine crankshaft in his right hand. 
The monument stands within the parking lot at the entrance to the Shops (now Alstom), in the 7200 block of
Ogden Road in Calgary.

CN Diesel Freight and Road Switchers  Locomotives
EMD SD 40, SD 40-2W, SD 50 and SD 60


CNR EMD SD40 #5010 at Concord Ont. July 1970

SD40, class GF-30d, built 1968 retired April 1998
and sold to the New Brunswick Railway. 
The EMD SD40 is a 6-axle diesel-electric 3000 hp locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive
Division between January 1966 and August 1972.

The SD40 is a high-horsepower, six-motor freight
locomotive. In 1966, EMD updated its locomotive catalog with entirely new models, all powered by the new 645 diesel engine. These included six-axle models SD38, SDP40 and SD45, in addition to the SD40. All shared standardized components, including the frame, cab, generator, trucks, traction motors, and air brakes. The primary difference was the power output: SD38 = 2,000 hp (1,490 kW) from a non-turbocharged V16, SD40 = 3,000 hp (2,240 kW) from a turbocharged V16, and SD45 = 3,600 hp (2,680 kW) from a turbocharged V20.
