906 is a MPI MP36PH-3C locomotive owned by TransLink for use on the West Coast Express.

This locomotive, the only one of this model in the West Coast Express fleet, was the first locomotive ordered by TransLink for use on the West Coast Express, as well as the first locomotive ordered since service on the West Coast Express began in 1995. It was purchased as an additional unit to maintain capacity and prevent the requirement of VIA units for spares.

This is also the only MP36PH-3C unit in Canada.

Maintenance is done by Via Canada and operations are done by Bombardier Transportation.
