  1. Very nice. A northern backdrop of rock, trees and water. A nice mix of power and heavy weight and stainless equipment. The poleline looks well maintained with fully populated crossarms.

  2. Very nice shot and consist!

  3. Neat consist with a steel heavyweight in maroon and three heavyweight U-series tourist sleepers clad in matching stainless steel.

  4. Hard to tell from this angle but it could be that they only had 3 “U”-series SS sheathed tourist cars and used a conventional car, or, as happened frequently during the sixties and early seventies, the crew was too large to be accommodated in the baggage / dorm car and the conventional car was the “dormitory”, especially in later years when the bag/dorms got really rough inside and crews hated them. The third possibility is that it is a business car. At this angle, it’s hard to tell.
