the Victoria Day weekend May 24, 1952. It was run for the benefit

replace old steam locomotive hauled trains depicted currently. A 12 car

car 62 testing its performance with Number 42 from Montreal.
Note: The test was to see if a single diesel unit of this size could handle the train replacing a K1 class 4-8-4 (Montreal-Megantic) or a G3 4-6-2 steam locomotive beyond. The test results showed a single unit was not capable of handling this heavy a train under all conditions. If running late it would not be able to recover time. The result was two units were assigned, these were MLW FPA2 and FPB2 A and B units.
