VIA FP9 6510 and F9B 6614 haul train #73 westbound on the Oakville Sub through Aldershot, passing under the signalbridges at Waterdown Road. An ex-CP baggage-dorm trails the power, followed by eight of VIA's ex-CN blue & yellow fleet. 

After retirement, VIA 6510, the only CN/VIA FP9 with its bell mounted on the right side (above the engineer) was donated to the City of Thunder Bay and is currently on display at Kaministiquia River Heritage Park. VIA 6614 became Algoma Central 1762.
