In the early 1980s, VIA Rail Canada rebuilt several of it's ex-Canadian National FP9As, installing 645 power assemblies, modified governors, and rebuild body cladding.
Several of these newly-christened FP9ARMs were equipped with Head End Power generators in 1998. These locomotives had a distinctive roof blister at the rear where the steam generator roof equipment once was.
Included is the main radiator blister base, the exhaust pipe, and a separate mount for the dynamic brake fan in HO scale. This part set is intended to be used with Plano Model Products mesh etchings, and Cannon & Co. 48" dynamic brake detail parts for the fan assemblies.
This part set is intended for people modelling:

- NRHS 6300
