Description

DCC/SOUND EQUIPPED MODEL
Block lettering

Canadian construction of the F7B took place at London, Ontario, between April 1951 and May 1952 with 43 units built (CN - 18, CP - 25) while the 46 strong fleet of F9B locomotives were delivered between January 1954 and July 1958 (CN - 38, CP - 8). CN and CP both used them on passenger and freight service and the majority of the fleet lasted well into the classic 1970s era of all dominant Sergeant stripes and Multimarks. Over a third of the survivors transferred to VIA Rail towards the end of the decade. CP retired its final operational examples in 1983, while several units in the VIA fleet were still active into the early 1990s.
