...Time Capsule....


...September 1980 observing this scene, I felt that I was experiencing a Time Capsule...


...Now, 39 years later looking at this Kodachrome....


 CN 6727, a 'modern' GE steeple cab electric, built 1950, with a sister *, in charge of the  the mid morning downtown bound commuter.


 September 19, 1980 at Val Royale, Kodachrome by S.Danko


what's interesting


 if that motor 6727 is old, those commuter coaches are ancient !....at least  3 decades older than 6727...


 CN 6727 ( not all 6700's were FPA's ! ) is  the former CN 200, acquired the new number in 1969


note * only three steeple cabs in this class: 6725 6726 6727, all retired by 1995


maybe a Montreal based contributor can do the other half of a ''Time Machine”?
