Dave Curtis General I love it: "Beaver boats"!!! Where does that come from? 1/13/2012 10:33:54 PM
Jim Cerulli General Its a term used by a few CP employees I know. It comes from the GE U Boat series that was so popular a few decades ago. With the Beaver Paint and GE "U boat" series name being so popular. The crews decided to call the AC4400's with "Beaver Paint" - Beaver Boats. 1/15/2012 10:40:13 PM
