CFS 2044 (ex 644) freshly repainted leads two other units. Breakeyville 10/08/2021

Faced with a major increase in traffic due to new business (30-50 car trains) CFS was fortunate to acquire
four of these poweful 2000 HP diesels around the same time as Ontario Southland was facing a loss of
traffic due to their not bidding to renew the lease of Guelph Junction Railway where a grade both
northbound and southbound between Guelph Jct. and Guelph required multiple units.
