Did CP end up buying those QNSL's? If so, did they keep the snow shields after painting in Action Red?

Except for CP 5400-5401 (QNSL 204-205) which had neither snow shields or large fuel tanks.

It's funny, in all my years, the only place I have ever heard them called a van was on a message board. Must be an eastern thing.

The tanks were at the rear of the unit in the hood behind those small door vents. Follow the roof piping.

Bob's perfectly correct in calling the caboose a van. Van is what they were called in eastern Canada. And not just by fans and message boards. The railways themselves called them vans.

That said, in B.C. we called them "cabs".

Here in Ottawa (CP Walkley Yard) we called them "vans" but I think you are correct by saying "must be an eastern thing." I remember going west for the first time back in 1974 they were called cabooses.
