One of the more unusual cars that went up north to Waterways. According to the 1986 CTG, combine 7210 was built in 1919 by CC&F. I saw it twice the summer before and this once in 1986. The 1987 CTG shows it being retired/stored. The only VIA car that I recall or can find in my notes that was part of the Muskeg Mixed consist. Looking through the windows, it appears it is only being used to move large objects in its final days. The complete train consisted of the 4236 and 4345 up front, various freight cars, with CN baggage's 7855 and 7856, CN caboose 79101, VIA combine 7210 and CN coach 4977 at the rear. A piece of the 4977 can be seen, it is of 1924 vintage and spent time in Montreal commuter service. Photo taken with Kodak 100asa print film in the evening.

  1. Not often you see clerestory rolling stock with VIA colours.
