Repainted and Relighted. When former Canadian National Railway Company 6710 (Z-1a, General Electric, 1914) was retired from service in 1995, it was donated to the City of Deux Montagnes, Quebec, then the end of the Deux Montagnes Line. After sitting as a stationary display for a number of years, it became eroded by the elements. In 2019, it was moved to Parc Belair about a mile from that location. The locomotive was repainted and even the pantographs now reach upwards towards an invisible catenary again and the headlights and number board shine brightly at night, as seen on Monday, April 3, 2023. The line is currently closed while it is being reconfigured for light rail operation.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
