  1. Great photo! Love the two together.

    VIA 6765 was painted blue and yellow (with red CN on the nose) sometime in late 1976. It switched to a red VIA on the nose in very late 1979 or very early 1980, and lost the “VIA” to become how it looked here sometime later in 1980 or early in 1981.

  2. Beautiful winter scene! One hard to redo since the steam heat days are long gone (among other things that have changed…)
