During the "Oka Crisis" in 1990, the Mercier bridge in the Montreal area was closed, causing traffic chaos. As a "relief valve", a commuter train was temporarily operated between Montreal and St-Isidore over CN lines using former CP commuter equipment borrowed from West Island commuter service.

Here we see one of two weekday trains with Montreal Urban Community FP7 1300 passing the CN station in St. Lambert.

  1. Quite something, hard to believe that some of the CN tracks it ran on don’t even exist anymore.
