  1. It was “good old days” for trainspotters, but not quite so good for paying passengers. By this time the interiors were getting shabby; the steam heating system was past its “sell-by date” and the dining car food not nearly as good as it was pre-1972 nor as it became post-1992 on VIA. There were many good points, however: the diner still had real silverware; the train ran daily and usually on time; and the fares were reasonable. As with most change: some good, some not so good.

  2. Yes, the good old days for sure, Arnold. Smart looking train and an active pole line. Sweet scene.

  3. Such a majestic clean scene. The good old days.
