Just scanned a couple negatives from early 1973, F7A units and the effects of melting snow off the roofs.  Kind of fun looking back, with an artsy perspective.  Penn Central F's

It sure is!  4061 & my all-time favorite 4063 were among the very last FP7's to work CP freight, at least in Saskatchewan.  They were fine old engines.  They would have had their steam generators removed.
