The dreary drab dull and gritty days of November...circa 1979 


 interesting times, and with VIA repainting CN ( and CP Rail ) units as fast as possible …


 ….the push was on to capture the remaining CN noodle passenger units


  VIA 68 on the Scarborough Hill with ex CN FPA-4's and a GEEP: 6793 – 67xx - 41xx


 near mile 326 Kingston Subdivision, November 1979 Kodak negative transported in a Nikkormat EL, by S.Danko


 what's interesting: 


 that 13 car conventional was considered normal for a Sunday afternoon 


 and that sound:  two FPA-4's at full throttle ! ( plus that geep too ) on jointed rail...


 do note: that jointed rail  has a  90  m.p.h.  limit !


   faster    


 That view  is  looking west towards GECO, so:


   on the GECO

  1. Classic, everyday scene in the days of CNR passenger pride. Very nice.

  2. Clickety clack… Awesome photo! Train speed still 90mph. Geco spur long gone now :-(
