CSTM/CN005386 The first Canadian National Railways diesel locomotives used to haul
            through-freights over the CVR were the CFA-16-4 “C-Liners” 8700 and
            8701. They were built by the Canadian Locomotive Company in 1952, according to the
            Fairbanks - Morse design. Although steam locomotives were used on CVR through-freights
            until 1957, the diesels enabled the same locomotives to be used along the entire route
            between Belleville, Montreal and New London, Connecticut.
