Remarks & Notes 
The Trainmasters normally worked the transfers to Hochelaga due to the steep grade on Hochelaga Hill. Here, the 8901 makes a very rare appearance on "The Peanut", the transfer between St. Luc Yard and the Glen Yard, the base for CP's passenger operations in Montreal. The sectionmen outside the yard office take a break from snow clearing to observe this unusual occurrence.
