Johnston in 1979 and shows the unit as CPB16-4 after being converted to Robot Control Car #15. Paint scheme: Red/white multi-mark on blue carbody.

The plate comes with the "Powered by Fairbanks Morse" bar also taken off the same unit. Both plates were purchased by the seller directly from the CPR in the mid 70's from their 'Bygones Shop'. These plates are very rare and seldom are for sale. There are some very small score marks on the mounting holes and one small gouge in the upper left side (see photo). The 'Powered by FM' plate lettering is also in very good shape. Both plates are in their 'as bought' condition but are easy to clean.
