Been There,


 Can't Do That Now !  


 The view – circa 1983 - from the TCH Spiral Tunnel Lookout


 VIA #1 'Canadian' has cleared CP Rail Yoho B.C. mile 129.8 Laggan Subdivison, 


  and is about to enter the 2,921 foot CP Rail Lower Spiral Tunnel, 


  on approach to CP Rail Cathedral mile 132.4 Laggan Subdivision,


 Sept 7 1983 Kodachrome by John Baker, collection of Steve Danko 


 what's interesting


 first generation power: FP7 and FP9 cabs and all those F9B's: witness here an A-B-B-B lash up!


 and the blue and yellow double stripe painted CCF / Pullman Standard built steel passenger cars:


 the 5700 series Dayniter cars ( most seemed to land with the RMR ) various 1970's re-built from coaches / sleepers ( I series (CC&F built 24 roomettes) , Val series (ex NYC ), River Series (ex NYC, FEC, MILW, EL) , Falls series ( ex SLSF) , most built circa 1948 to 1954 )


 the E series sleeping cars ( 4 section, 8 roomettes, 4 double bedrooms) Pullman Standard built 52 for CN 1954: numbered named examples 1136 Endeavour, 1140 Enterprise, 1155 Evangeline survived into 1991


 the 1300 series dining room cars, Pullman Standard built 24 for CN 1954: numbered examples 1340, 1347, 1349 in service through 1991 


 and not to mention the VIA abandonment of the CP Rail (as CP was known by at that time) routing....
