#18 - Posted on Saturday, Jan 21st 2017 - VIA Rail loco #6309 - EMD FP9A (FP9) at ExpoRail, Quebec, Canada
Foto taken on May 27th 2007 at ExpoRail museum in Saint-Constant (Delson), Quebec, Canada.
This 260 thousand pound, 1,750 horsepower locomotive resides at one of the finest rail museums I have visited, ExpoRail.
These steam-heated FP9A diesels were acquired by VIA Rail of Canada upon the dissolution of passenger service by Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways.
Re-manufactured at the CN shops in Moncton, New Brunswick, they powered VIA Rail’s passenger trains within Canada.
