When VIA unveiled its wraps for Canada 150 in 2017, the splash of extra colour was a welcome sight across the country. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of VIA Rail Canada in 2018, the wraps were modified, as seen here. With a friendly wave from the seasoned engineer, VIA number 1 crosses from York 1 to the south track to head east towards Doncaster and points north.

  1. Ah okay, thanks. I guess that saves on having to eye the whole consist(?). Interesting either way.

  2. #1 goes out of the USRC and west on the Weston Sub to Parkdale, north on the Newmarket Sub clearing Snider North, then shoves back towards MacMillan Yard. This photo was taken right after the reverse move. It will head east on the York Sub to Doncaster and then north on the Bala Sub. #2 simply proceeds south on the Bala Sub into the USRC.

  3. So does #1/#2 not use the Bala Sub between Union and the York Sub anymore? Another recent photo mentioned the movement running up the Newmarket to the York, over the the Bala.
