CDAC (ex-Amtk) F40PHRm # 451 in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu, Qc. Note the shortened nose and platform. These 'Widecabs' are unique to CDAC F40s, which were made during a rebuild. Another thing that is interesting is the fact that about 20 feet to the left of the camera was a sign that read, "END OF CDAC, START OF ST.L&H"
A CDAC train being led by GP40 # 40, along with two HATX GP40s, F40PHRm # 453, GP35m # 510 and 515. In Eastman, Qc.
By looking at the second and third engines, it can be seen that they were originally Chessie System and Atlantic Coast Line respectively. HATX must not have had any time to repaint them!!
I managed to catch up with the above train, in Orford Qc. Unfortunately, it was getting a bit dark for pictures. CDAC F40PHRm #453
CDAC GP35m # 515 in Orford, Qc.
Vermont (CDAC) GP35m # 510 in Orford, Qc.
ST. LAWRENCE AND ATLANTIC RAILROAD
& ST. LAWERNCE AND ATLANTIC QUEBEC
St. Lawrence and Atlantic (SLR) GP9 # 60, idling rapidly on a Sunday afternoon in Island Pond, Vt. Note the spark arrestors on the exhaust stacks. (as this engine is used to switch cars at the Waussau paper mill in Groveton, NH.)
Another picture of GP9 # 60, this engine was originally owned by Grand Trunk Western
GATX GP40 # 3702 and SLQ M420W # 3519 dragging a short southbound train
uphill in early January. This photo was taken by Michael Eby with my new
digital camera in Waterville, Qc. Look at how the GP40 is making more smoke
than the M420!!!!!

I was standing on top of the loaded flatbed trailer of my grandfather's truck when I took this photo! ( I was able to do this because a spring broke on the clutch and we had to wait for another tractor to be brought to us (it was quite a choice spot for a railfan to breakdown, No??))
