Canadian National Railways (7/1950-1/1983)

Background

CN acquired their Newfoundland 42" narrow gauge operation in 1949-50 as part of Newfoundland's Confederation deal with Canada. These cars were first listed in the July 1950 ORER under NR reporting marks and were changed over to CN during the next few years. By the 1970s, CN also listed an alternative CNF reporting mark for their Newfoundland operations, although it appears that this was only used on paper. CN stopped listing their Newfoundland cars with the May 1983 ORER, and abandoned the operation a few years later.

During the 1950s, CN purchased a number of new cars to augment the aging Newfoundland fleet, but by the 1960s had opted to retruck former mainland cars instead. There were also some mainland cars assigned to mainland-to-Newfoundland service, being re-equipped with narrow-gauge trucks at Port Aux Basques for their trip on the island, and recovering their standard-gauge trucks before returning to the mainland.

Data has been taken from the following ORERs (MM/YY): 7/1950-1/1983.
