| The Montreal Locomotive Works M-420 is a diesel-electric locomotive built between 1973 and 1977 in Montreal Quebec, Canada. A total 88 units were built for Canadian railways, including 8 B-units built for the British Columbia Railway; most of production went to the Canadian National Railway. Only two units were sold outside of Canada, to Ferrocarriles del Estado in Venezuela. The M-420 was one of the first locomotive models (along with the GMD-built GP38-2) to use the wide-nosed Safety (or Comfort) Cab, pioneered by Canadian National Railway. By the early 1990s, variations on this cab design had become the standard of the industry. As with wide-nosed GMD units from the same period, references to the model commonly add a "W" at the end of the model name, but it is not part of the official model designation. Most M-420 units rode on MLW ZWT (Zero Weight-Transfer) trucks.|
