Remarks & Notes 
Triple Header. On November 12, 2023, Canadian National Railway Company Box Motor 6714 (née-Canadian Northern 604, Z-1a, GE, 1917) was moved from its place on the display track near North Road in East Windsor, Connecticut at the Connecticut Trolley Museum on November 12, 2023, culminating the long term effort to find a better home for the veteran electric. After serving over seven decades transporting the commuters of Montreal, the locomotive was retired and brought to the museum. Its acquisition was during a different era in the museum's curation, and the decision was made to find a better home. The Halton County Radial Railway in Rockwood, Ontario stepped forward to adopt the motor. The locomotive was moved by Oshawa Railways Steeple Cab Electric Locomotive No. 18 (Baldwin/Westinghouse, 1918) making its first run since 2006, assisted by Hartford Electric Light Co. 1 (GE, 25T, GE, 1949).
