On June 3, 2008 we went to Montréal via Exporail, the Canadian Railroad Museum. At Exporail we saw CP 4744 a one of a kind M640. 4744 was one of many locomotives there built by Montréal Locomotive Works, the Canadian subsidiary of the the American Locomotove Company (ALCO). The M640 was called "the flying nun" by crews, presumably due to the radiator section. It was also a testbed for the first AC Traction motors, used in an A-1-A fashion in the trucks.
