CP 8764 at Montreal West – May 1979

When I first started learning about CP on the Lakeshore trains I assumed that most services were lead by FP7’s. Not that I was far off but I’m fast learning that RS10’s like the one in this shot were also fairly common place.

CP 1412 at Dorval – July 20, 1978

I found this shot online and really wanted to share it. This is just beautiful. With any luck the link from Flickr works and you can see it too:

Looks like the hood of an RS18 or RS10 trailing that FP7 on the back track. I wonder what train it was on? I’ve seen lots of shots of that arrangement on the lead of the Canadian but to be honest I’d really like to hear it was on the lead of the commuter train headed in the opposite direction.


Thanks to some excellent detective work as noted in the Comments attached to this post, the mystey trailing MLW is an RS10. Great points Chris, thanks for sharing them.
