Early VIA and the daily FAST transcontinentals.


  Enroute to Barrie and beyond, one-two hundred fifty of a second is insufficient to freeze capture ex CP Rail FP-9A #1413. 


  Daily FAST  VIA Rail #1 on the CN Newmarket, with only weeks remaining *, May 12, 1979 Kodachrome by S.Danko


Interesting


  Early VIA Rail maintained CP Rail's daily FAST service, 

 albeit slowed by the re-routing onto CN Newmarket (Union to CN Boyne to CP Rail Reynolds) 

and the divergent route into Winnipeg (to access the ex CNorR Winnipeg station),


  VIA's  April 1979 Canadian: Toronto to Banff,  50:10 (two nights) and  67:35 to Vancouver (three nights).   


  [ CP Rail circa 1975 The Canadian  timekeeping was FAST, with first generation aging F's,  47:30 Toronto to Banff and  64:55 to Vancouver ].  





   Noteworthy *  The June 17, 1979 timetable: 

    re-routed the daily VIA #1 & 2  CANADIAN exclusively onto CP RAIL to /from Montreal.


    re- routed daily VIA trains  #3 & 4  SUPER CONTINENTAL exclusively on CN to /from Toronto. 


   VIA trains # 1 & 2, # 3 & 4: The June  17 1979 re-routings were only in place until June 1982  when the SUPER CONTINENTAL trains # 3 & 4 disappeared completely, replaced by 10 regional daily / tri weekly trains.
