St-Henri was a favourite location of mine in the mid-late 1980s. Close to my downtown apartments, one could catch VIA's Toronto and Ottawa trains here (including "The Canadian" which ran with a Skyline dome until 1987, if I recall correctly); CN through freights to and from the Maritimes which often had MLW power; CN freights to St. Albans (CV)/Rouses Point (D&H)/Island Pond (Grand Trunk New England)/Massena (Conrail); and transfers with RS18s and/or GP9s to CN points on the South Shore and around Pointe St. Charles. Here we see VIA train No. 32 from Ottawa whose FPA4 6775 is assisted by leased CN GP40-2LW 9431. VIA's F40PH-2s will start arriving in late 1986, ending CN power leases to improve winter service reliability.
