    Did C.P. use the Fa1's for passenger service or freight? If passenger, what type of cars? Also, if freight, what loads?

    I believe the FA1 locos were bought for freight service. They bought FPA2, and FPB2 for passenegr service (see illustration). The "P" was for passenger and indicated a steam heating boiler. Of course, in summer any loco could pull passenger trains, and an FA could be combined with a trailing FPA or FPB. I'll check if I have any further photos.
