That's my take on the situation. There are a number of pictures of Wabash(Canada) and N&W(Canada) shots all showing the same group of F's with Dofasco trucks. At the time, Canada had some pretty onerous import laws regarding capital goods, leading GM to produce both autos and locomotives in Canada for local buyers.
