FP9 PAR1 Pan Am leads business train

Pan Am FP9 PAR1 leads business train southbound through Northampton behind Foster Ferrar hardware store. This FP9 was built in 1954 by Electro Motive Division for Canadian National as No. 6505. The unit was placed in passenger service and became part of VIA Rail Canada, Canada’s equivalent of Amtrak, in 1978. Upgrading their fleet in the early 1990s, VIA sold the engine to New Hampshire's Conway Scenic Railway for use on the tourist railroad. In 2010, the engine was part of a trade between Conway Scenic Railway and Pan Am Railways that saw the engine move to its new home in Waterville, Maine. After application of the Pan Am Railways blue paint scheme it became PAR 1
