An afternoon down at VIA's Brockville Station finds CN RS18 3125 and a VIA 6600-series B-unit handling train #54 for Montreal, while 6793 sits on the station pocket track in charge of #44's consist for Ottawa. Both ran from Toronto as a combined eastbound #44-54 consist until arriving at Brockville, where the consist would be split, a spare unit at the station would couple to #44's cars, and each separate train would then continue on to its respective destination.

After the 1981 cuts to VIA, equipment from The Canadian ran between Toronto and Montreal on corridor trains #53 and #54, hence the stainless steel ex-CP equipment from The Canadian shown in today's consist of VIA #54 running through (there's more information on this arrangement on Trackside Treasures).

  1. Any idea what the second car (behind the baggage car) is Bill, or others? It seems to have an unusual window configuration.
