Fortunately, when CPR purchased CM&Q, they recovered and chose to preserve the antique BAR F3A Diesel, long stored at Derby shops. My understanding is the locomotive's antique value as a (basically) stock F3a of 1948 vintage, hasn't been lost on the CPR. Does anyone know if plans have been made for the old girl and where she is stored at the present (08/2022)?

Last known location was St. Luc yard in Montreal I believe. That was as of 5/2021.
