VIA's criteria for motive power relative to train length, at least in the Quebec/Windsor corridor, was 1 engine for up to 6 cars, 2 engines for up to 10 cars and 3 or more engines for longer trains. On a quiet Sunday afternoon train 72 from Windsor is gliding to a stop at the recently repainted Chatham station. FPA-4 6785 is sporting a pair of CN-style clip-on ditchlites as it brings 6 cars to the platform for a small group of revenue passengers. Just prior to repainting this station was grey, but I preferred this colour. Even the attempt at some horticulture was a welcomed touch.
