CNs new United Aircraft Turbo-Train flashes by almost silently. Although loved by many, these trains were plagued by mechanical problems and were withdrawn from service for the final time in 1982. Photo at Beaconsfield, Quebec May 09, 1968.

  1. Are you certain that’s Becaonsfield? Looks like St Hubert during the test runs.

  2. Wow… this is really, really nice! Thank you for sharing, Sir!

  3. 1968,the 1st year.

  4. Actually when they were removed from service they were performing exactly as they should have, but the unfortunate incidents and the performance problems sealed their fate and brought in the LRC as a replacement. Sad :-(

  5. Nice. I was fortunate enough to have a couple of rides on it in the pre Via days.
