Today, the CN train interchanging with the New England Central at St. Albans, Vermont runs with CN power (or whatever is around Taschereau Yard). But for a few years after the Central Vermont was sold, CN provided the crews and NECR provided the power for the Montreal-St. Albans turn. Here we see NECR 6526 (former CSX/B&O GP40), 9530 and 9539 (former IC/GM&O GP38s) leading the train through St-Lambert on a warm August evening. Hard to believe that almost 25 years have passed since this shot was taken...

  2. Always liked that paint scheme!

  3. This is wild….
