The C40-8 from Pan Am was returned after sitting at NMJ for almost a month.

CEFX 1001, 1013 and 1008 have found their way on property over the weekend. They had been on the LS&I for many years and then recently were at CAD in Montreal. Not sure if they are being leased or stored on CMQ.

EDIT: numbers have been updated, hard to tell from this photo

Re: CMQ Motive power - A State of Maine Livery?

Post by Gilbert B Norman » Sun Jul 07, 2019 11:20 am

If it weren't for the State of Maine liveried Box and Reefer cars, interchanged throughout the US, who would have ever heard of the Bangor & Aroostock?

To the eyes of a ten yo "latent railfan" (with train-hating parents), this railroad must be as big as the Pennsy.

Now with how those cars put a Class II on the map, how say CMQ livery a cowl locomotive "State of Maine". Obviously, a cowl would have the same "easel" as a Boxcar, but those are "not exactly" of too much relevance nowadays.

Sure would be a nice gesture; and do more to put the memory of Megantic away.
