ex VIA 6143 at IRS in Moncton

6143 was built in June 1951 as a RDC-2 (serial number 5416) for Lehigh Valley and was numbered 41. It was purchased by CPR in September 1958 and renumbered 9116. Then in March 1975 it was renumbered CP 9306.  It was acquired by VIA RAIL in September 1978 and renumbered VIA 6143 in October 1981. At some point prior to 1982 it was converted from RDC-2 (with baggage section) to RDC-1 (all passenger). It was sold to Industrial Rail Services in 2000.
