The PARSONS VALE Line

In 1938, the LT&L and the MTRR purchased 26 2-8-2s for services in the Montréal suburban area. These engines were successful, and the class survived basically intact until December 1961, when they were replaced with class DL7 (ALCO Century C420s) diesel locomotives. One locomotive -- number 344 -- was preserved and is now used on fantrips in Canada and Maine.
