Canadian Bellequip Ltd.

Bellequip was a short-lived leaser of diesel locomotives all of which were acquired 9/1971 from QNS&L.
Based in Montreal it was owned by some CPR officials. Major customer was the CPR itself!
The only other customer was the CNR. Most units were soon sold 2, 6/1972 to Precision National.
