NOTES: All locomoitves are lettered for NBSR, except leased units.

The NBR trio: New Brunswick Southern Railway (NBSR), Eastern Maine RY (EMRY) and Maine Northern (MNRY) serve the former Canadian Pacific line between Montreal and St. John. Together the lines connect Brownville Jct with St. John, Canada's second busiest Atlantic port; so their connections are quite important.

Leased CN GP-9m's may be seen switching St. John.
