Caption: Here we are once again in St. Lambert on a summer's evening in 1987. VIA's F40PH-2 units are starting to be used on transcontinental trains, so it's a treat to get a matched set of FPA4/FPB4 units. The engineman has just cracked the throttle to pull away from the station--in your mind you hear Stan Roger's singing "the Ocean's going to take me home..." and revel in the sound of a matched set of 251 Alco prime movers as the train leaves town!
