Trailing on train VIA 72, forward-facing VIA 915 has a good view over the top of the LRC coaches, which might be handy in some circumstances.  However VIA 915 is being dragged shut down so probably not crewed.  VIA 914 with 40th anniversary logo leans into the Bayview Junction wye on recently replaced track; fresh ballast shows the area renewed in April 2018.  Train 72 will leave the Dundas sub and join the Oakville sub a few tenths of a mile ahead.  
The LRC coaches are 3463 (VIA 1 Business), 3350 (40 ans / l'avenir est a bord), 3341 (grey & blue), 3324 & 3331 (grey & turquoise).
