No 4069 was renumbered by the CPR to haul the new Canadian in 1955. This "A" unit, a class DPA-15f locomotive helped usher in a new era of train travel in Canada.
Each train consisted of 14 new stainless steel cars including 2 Dome cars. The Canadian ran from Montreal to Vancouver in 71 hours and 10 minutes. Here you see it rushing west into the setting sun.
You can view it now at the West Coast Railway Association's Heritage park in Squamish, British Columbia
