In 1974 Nelson, British Columbia was the home base for many of CP's remaining CLC (FM design) locomotives. I have heard the yard is long gone now, but back then railfans from all over were welcomed in Nelson.

  1. My first visit there was in Sept of 1974 but I was unlucky, I guess. Didn’t see one of these units. (Somebody told me I had to go to Trail) This is a great shot, with the mountains and all. Gorgeous country.

  2. The angle of the sun is absolutely perfect.

  3. That is a great picture and thanks for posting it. The first time I visited Nelson was in 1981 and the FM’s were long gone by then. I did manage to buy one set of builders plates from the CP stores in Montreal. It was from CP (CLC) locomotive 8552. That is as close as I ever got to a real live unit.
