The equipment on the Lakeshore and Blainville commuter lines is mostly older equipment with some newer cars from the early 1990's. When the Bombardier cars were added in 1991 all of the existing equipment used on the Lakeshore line was converted to be powered from a generator at the head end of the train rather than the traditional batteries and wheel mounted generator.

Used on the Montreal - Blainville, Delson, Hudson and St-Hilaire Lines
