Locomotive #1202, "Walter B. Beebe," was built by General Motors Diesel (EMD's Canadian subsidiary) in 1953 as Canadian Pacific #7403, a 1200 horsepower SW9.
It was rebuilt in 1982 as Canadian Pacific SW1200RSu #1202.
It was retired in 2005 and sold to Larry's Truck & Electric, from where Dick Samuels purchased it in 2006.
It is identified as a Canadian switcher by the large numberboard housing in front.
It also features Flexicoil switcher trucks in place of the rougher-riding standard AAR trucks under the Oregon Pacific's other switchers.
#1202 was originally assigned to the East Portland branch, but was moved to the Molalla branch in 2013.
