Locomotive Roster - Part 1

Setting the layout in a 1972-1976 bracket made me wonder about locomotives used in Quebec City at that time. Quickly, a coherent fleet appeared. Pictures used are from Marty Bernard, Gerry Burridge and a few other collections available over Internet. This overview will help me to build the required fleet. So far, I've got most models needed thought many need redetailing and repainting to better represent the prototypes. Models are Life-Like Proto 2000, Atlas Classic, Bowser and Bachmann (new generation).

Canadian National:

Most locomotives are in CN Wet Noodle scheme (post-1961).

C424: #3222, 3236, 3212 (Always paired, sometimes with a GP9, for freight trains)

GP9: #4101, 4105 (excursion trains in Charlevoix), 4423, 4492, 4455, 4463, 4509 (green and yellow scheme), 4521 (Alone or paired, always with a steam generator while pulling a passenger train. Definitively the multi-purpose work house in the area.)
