CP RS18 8744, FB1 4416 and a leased Bessemer & Lake Erie 700-series F-unit cross the Humber River bridge with an eastbound freight on the approach to Lambton Yard in May 1965.

The B&LE unit was one of a handful of foreign road units that power-short CP had on lease at the time. CP 4416 was one of the few FB1's that wasn't traded in to MLW on new C424 units in the mid-60's.
