2003 $20 Transportation Series Train - Canadian National Railway FA-1 Diesel-Electric Locomotive - No. 9400 Sterling Silver Coin

As is typical, the outer cardboard sleeve might have some light wear.

Towards the middle of the 20th century, the difficult terrain between Montreal and Chicoutimi was proving to be a significant challenge for steam locomotives hauling heavy loads of paper and bauxite ore. Eager to solve this problem, researchers turned to the latest technology, a new diesel engine design that promised more power and greater efficiency. Success was found in the all-new FA-1 diesel-electric locomotive, and the Canadian railway changed forever.
