CP 4214 nicely repainted working the Cornwall job. Dorval May 8, 1985 Fred Clark
He was #55 westbound from Soulanges to Cornwall, but we used the #55
on our train dispatch book at St. Luc, and returning he was #58. LBC

4069_4070_1432_RS-10 St.Luc July 21, 1974. Unidentified RS-10 is for the Cornwall job.

On Sundays, we’d deadhead 3 commuter units backwards for him to set off at Vaudreuil for the eastbound commuter trains on Monday morning. We had them lifted eastbound by #58 on Friday and St. Luc would use them locally until Sunday’s #55. And often the Friday units were scattered all over the place, and 3 different units would go out on Sunday. LBC
