In the 80's, VIA ran 5 daily trains along the back route Toronto to London, all with various numbers of Budd Cars. It was all train order territory as well west of Georgetown. Here, 4 Budds are about to hammer the CP diamond on their way west. 

I was lucky enough to work these jobs quite a bit when I was hired by CN in 1982. 3 hours and 20 minutes to London, with some really fast running west of Kitchener. Times were good.

  1. …oh, and at 90 m.p.h. on the Oakville Sub., quite the ride…
    …and at that speed on a NRHS St.Thomas return trip our 3 Budds hit an empty 45 gallon oil drum, quite the commotion…
