Back in the day, you could occasionally catch CN passenger engines in freight service around southern Ontario. In this scene from March 1970, an eastbound freight descends "the hill" into Bayview behind the interesting lash-up of FPA-4 6780, GP40 4003, GP9 4100 and GP9 442?. Look at that brake shoe smoke!

  1. it looks like the steam generator is running which seems odd.

  2. I found a “going away” shot of this train; the last unit was the 4421.
