Via #1 "The Canadian" has just made the scheduled 1705h station stop at White River, this was my first opportunity to step off and take a few photos. I had boarded VIA #1 at Barrie at 0140h, it wasn't too long after that we crossed over at CN Boyne and will be riding CP rails for the remainder of the journey to Vancouver. The train is a mix of steam equipped VIA blue and yellow and Budd equipment with the blue stripe along the upper car body.

  1. Great photo showing the early mix of CN & CP steam heated passenger equipment on VIA’s The Canadian. Looks like an old CN heavyweight balloon top car near the front of the consist. I like the pay phone on the end wall of the station, and the garbage/fire barrel on the platform. Hopefully you have a few more photos from this early 80′s cross-Canada journey to post.

  2. Great photo!!! The car in front of the dome is a 5700 series day/nighter coach. Wonderful Northern Ontario image. Thanks for sharing.
