part II
In this issue of Canadian Rail we conclude our coverage of the
M. & S.C. on the twenty-fifth anniversary of its closing. The photos
are mostly of the interurban operation, and, in addition, there are
four drawings of interurban equipment reproduced from original blue­
prints made in 1915 and 1916. We hope that you will enjoy this issue
and that it will serve as a permanent record of the days of inter­
urban trains in Montreal.

THE THREE-MILE SPUR LINE TO STE ANGELE was once the Central Vermont
line to Farnham, but was cut back to St. Angele in 1926 at the
same time it was electrified by the M. & S.C. In later days only·
one train a day went down this branch. Cars 107 and 200, here
photographed in January 1951, were on a special excursion.

WHATEVER BECAME OF 606?
These two very rare photos, reproduced from the Canadian Railway
and Marine World of March 1918, show M. & S.C. car 606 as it was when new. Anyone
looking at the list of M. & S.C. cars will notice
that the 600-class interurban cars were numbered 600-605 and 607-611,
as well as the newer cars 620-623. One might wonder whatever became
of 606, and in fact the answer to that question is a rather amusing
piece of M. & S. C. folklore.
As the photo shows, there was indeed a 606, one of three cars
(606-608) built by Ottawa Car Co. and delivered in 1917. As luck
would have it, in 1910 a drug had been discovered which was a treat­
ment for a certain disease which is best not mentioned here. This
drug, officially called Salversan, was the 606th compound tried by
the discoverer, and so became known popularly as 606. In the days
following World War I, the car 606 became the butt of some rather
vulgar jokes along the lines of We have to take 606 tonight,
This so embarrassed the officials of the M. & S.C. that it was at
last decided to renumber the car.
By the time the renumbering took place, in 1927, two more cars
had been built, these being 609 and 610 built in 1922. So the
renumbered 606 used the next available number which was 611, and
which, as it turned out, was the last number of the series before
the much later 620-623.
When the M. & S.C. was nearing the end of its career and the
C.R.~. decided to preserve a representative interurban car, the
choice was made of car 607 which still had its original interior
finisho However, only a month before the end of service, 607 was damaged beyond
repair in a wreck and was scrapped in 1956. The
next-best car was 611 which was saved and is now at the Canadian
Railway Museum. So car 606, the same one shown in these photos,
is now 611 and is alive and well at the Museum!
QUEST-IL
ARRIVE A LA VOITURE 606?
Ces deux photos rarissimes, reproduites de la revue Canadian Rail­
way and Marine World de mars 1918, montrent la voiture 606 du
M. & S.C. alors neuve. Une verification des unites de la compagnie
indique que la classe 600 inclus les nos 600-605 et 607-611, puis
les nouvelles voitures 620-623. Qu est-il arrive au no. 606? La
reponse constitue une amusante page de notre folklore ferroviaire.
La voiture 606 a existe, il y a preuve photographique; construite
par Ottawa Car Co. et delivree en 1917. Le hasard a voulu que, en
1910, un remede fut decouvert pour une maladie dite honteuse, que
nous ne nommerons pas; nomme Salversan, ce remede fut Ie 606eme
melange experimente par les chercheurs, et fut donc connu populai­
rementcommele 606. Apres la premiere guerre, la voiture 606 devint
la victime de blagues plus ou moins salees du genre Je dois prendre
Ie 606 ce soir. La direction fut si embarrassee par ces blagues
que la decision fut prise de renumeroter Ie 606.
A ce moment, les voitures re~ues portaient des numeros allant
jusqud 610; il fut donc decide de changer Ie 606 pour Ie 611, qui
devint Ie dernier numero de la serie avant larrivee des 620-623,
quelques annees plus tard.

205
R A I L
Alors que la fin approchait, notre Association a decide de preserver
une de ces voitures, et la 607 fut choisie, ayant un interieur
original. Cependant, un mois avant la fin du service, 607 fut impli­
quee dans un accident et dut etre retiree puis demantel~e en 1956.
Le choix fut alors reporte sur la voiture 611, en meilleur etat, et
celle-ci fut preservee au Musee Ferroviaire Canadien. Donc la voi­
ture 606, celIe des photos, est maintenant la 611 et bien preservee
au Musee.

of a level crossing. In this series of views, all taken August
4 1951, we see first the signalman in his cabin operating the

train turns on the loop at Granby before backing into the station
ready to return to Montreal. While on the loop, C.N.R. steam

the electric cars in the background belon,g to the same train as
those in the foreground, showing the extreme curvature of the
track around the loop.

SOME VIEWS OF M. & S.C. FREIGHT AND WORK CARS not as often photo­
graphed as the passenger cars. Freight trailer 514 taken at Granby
by R.F. Corley on June 12 1949 was equipped to run in passenger
trains. Sweeper 302 and snow plow 307 were often called into serv­
ice during the blizzards that often occur in the area. Electric
locomotive 325 was,strangely, numbered in with the 320-class sur­
burban passenger cars. Finally, caboose 508, photographed by R.F,
Corley at Granby West on June 12 1949, had conventional coupl ers
as well as a draw-bar for coupling to the electric cars.

ON NOVEMBER 24 1951 THE END CAME to the Granby electric trains,
as electric operation was cut back to Marieville. As the snow
blows, the last load is taken on the baggage motor, and soon the
old interurban train will leave for Montreal for the last time, so
ending an era which had lasted for thirty-five years.
Le 24 novembre 1951 vit la fin du service electrique jusqud
Granby, les trains nallant plus qud Marieville. SOUS la rafale
de neige, la derniere cargaison est placee d bord de la voiture
baggage-motorisee, et, bientot, I antique train interurbain
partira pour la derniere fois vers Montreal, mettant fin dune
epoque qui dura trente-cinq ans.
