VIA – ONR Northland pool train #129 under the ( now old, prior to rebuild ) Union Station shed 


 with a mix of ONR and VIA (CN) FPA-4 power


 ONR FP7A, GMD 1953, #1502 retired 1988, rebuilt 1994 to FP7u #2000 with CAT engine, retired 2004 and scrapped 2008 ( 2002 ex 1521 at ex CPR station North Bay display)
 

 at Union Depot, December 7, 1980 Kodachrome (colour un-saturated) by S.Danko
 

 what's interesting


 I have read that at one time the mixed owner power lashups were discontinued due to differences in brake line pipe pressure settings – the CN units experiencing excessive brake shoe wear


 more Northland pool


   ONR CN pool #98
