A mid-spring Friday evening finds freshly painted VIA FP9A 6505 guiding No. 72 upbound through the cross overs at Bayview Junction. Constructed by GMD London as CN 6505 in September of 1954 the Emperor’s new dress would only see only a couple additional years of VIA service being set aside and stored in the early 1990’s. Eventually acquired by the Conway Scenic Railroad the venerable unit would be conveyed to Pan Am Railways, emerging as PAR 1 in an attractive solid blue scheme in 2010.
