A rare look inside the cab of Bombardier's LRC demonstrator locomotive JV1, while at CN's station in Sarnia ON in May of 1975. Posed inside is my railfan friend Ken Borg, trying out the right-hand seat and then-modern engineer's controls.  Taken while the BBD demo LRC JV1 and coach JV2 were test-running on CN Tempo trains in the Toronto-Sarnia corridor, a view of the sleek modern exterior can be found here: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=19855.

  1. Same style that was used on TTC subway cars of the era, too.

  2. Rare indeed! The dial type throttle similar to the turbo is interesting. Thanks for sharing.
