Hi all,

I need help with the 1950s CCF MU cars used in Montreal commuter service until the mid 1990s. Can anyone help with photographs of the underbodies for motor and trailer cars and what type of trucks were used under these cars? Thanks in advance,

Mike Bartel

Mike, I don't know if you remember a Kalmbach publication called "Trains Illustrated", but during the short publication run there was an article about the Montreal electrics around 1991. There was also a Railroad and Railfan Magazine article about the Montreal Electrics around 1994 or 1995. Finally, you may want to check out Jon Bell's site, Dave's Railpix, or Don Ross's Depot. They are all known traction enthusiasts that may have pics.
