CP 4214 nicely repainted working the Cornwall job. Dorval May 8, 1985
He was #55 westbound from Soulanges to Cornwall, but we used the #55
on our train dispatch book at St. Luc, and returning he was #58. LBC
4069_4070_1432_RS-10 St.Luc July 21, 1974. Unidentified
RS-10 is for the Cornwall job.
On Sundays, wed deadhead 3 commuter units backwards for him to
set off at Vaudreuil for the eastbound commuter trains on Monday morning.
We had them lifted eastbound by #58 on Friday and St. Luc would use
them locally until Sundays #55. And often the Friday units were
scattered all over the place, and 3 different units would go out on
Cornwall Street Railway,
