Canadian National FPA-4 #6758 & 6762

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.
