CN 9416 has been leased to head up the Chaleur, VIA 16/17, on the Gaspe coast. Historically the Chaleur has had traction problems in the fall with leaves on the track. The addition of the GP40 on the head end will hopefully permit the Chaleur to make the entire trip without having to turn back. The CN unit is being added at Matapedia and removed there on the return trip. Word is that it has been rented for a month.
