A note on PV&T engine classification

The original PV&T engine classification was to use the number of the first engine delivered in an order for the class. When the class A electrics arrived, this was thrown over for a alphabetical classification, which has more or less survived with all of the other electric locomotives (except for the class 280 switching locomotives.) When the diesels started to arrive, they were classified with a variant of the standard interurban car classification – the prefix DL followed by the order number for the first engine of that type.

Thus you have the class 277 logging engine that’s been restored at Parsons Vale, where it rubs shoulders with the class D heavy freight engines running between Portland and Montréal, where they hand off their freights to the DL6 roadswitchers on the Montreal Terminal.
