Artist's Description

Mystery Train
Location: Peninsula, Ohio (USA)

Group these two pieces together for a wonderful display.

Model FPA4 serial number 83158, a 1,500 horsepower, 90 mph, diesel passenger locomotive, was built by Montreal L…ocomotive Works, a subsidiary of American Locomotive Company (ALCO) for the Canadian National Railway in March 1959 and was designated CN 6780.

It was transferred to VIA Rail in 1978. VIA Rail Canada now operates the national passenger rail service on behalf of the Government of Canada.

Sometime between Aug 1984 and April 1987 it was acquired by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. In April, 1987, the B&O finally went out of corporate existence when it was formally absorbed into CSX Transportation.

B&O 800 apparently was mothballed until it was acquired by the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad in 2001.
