I just completed another excellent journey from Vancouver to Toronto on the Via Rail Canadian. It is something of a miracle that the train and equipment still endure in 2018.
But here is a shot of the real McCoy. This is the Montreal section of the CP Canadian slamming through the western suburbs of Montreal. I can't recall at this point where exactly this picture was taken, nor do I know which direction this train was traveling. Back in those days, the Canadian operated in separate sections to both Toronto and Vancouver, which combined at Sudbury for the long trip west.
