| Canadian National's class of FPA-4s were
built by the Montreal Locomotive works between 1958
& 1959. They replaced steam locomotives on mainline passenger
runs and many survived into VIA Rail ownership.
On March 25th, 1972, the Ontario Rail Association used #6762 to run a special train from Toronto to the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival. While the special was at Elmira, a Kinsmen "Sugar-bush Express" shuttle from Kitchener arrived hauled by FP9 #6536 with #6758 on the rear.
