CP Rail at Washago !
 

 VIA Rail #2 is on the CN Bala Subdivision, approach to CN Washago, except for that steam generator and a repainted ex CN coach near the head end, this is an ex CP consist  –  a stranger in a foreign land 
 

.....Power provided by ex CP Rail FP's  #1432 - 1404, the CN crews probably wondering what they did to deserve that ride!



At the Washago  switch,  #2 is onto the CN Newmarket Subdivision to serve Orillia, Barrie, Newmarket and St. Clair Avenue stations. The last VIA Canadian served those stations June 16, 1979 !  (Such is progress ? ! )
 

The two nearest tracks are the CN Newmarket Subdivision
