Via #2 The Canadian, with ex CP Rail 4066 on the CN Newmarket Subdivision at Maple Ontario, October 1978. 
What's interesting:
After Via removed CP trains 11 & 12 from the CP Rail Mactier Subdivision, October 1978, Via #1 & #2 The Canadian operated exclusively out of Toronto on CN west (north) to CN Boyne Bala Subdivision mile 146 (Parry Sound) then onto CP Rail to Vancouver. 
(At that time Super Continental operated exclusively out of Montreal - even more interesting the Super C's Toronto connection was via North Bay trains #121 and #122!).
Also: June 1979 Via abruptly flipped the Super C to Toronto only and The Canadian to Montreal only (see railpictures id=2439 and id=3178 )
That CP Rail FP7-A 4066 was renumbered several times:
to 1422 in 1954;
back to 4066 in 1966;
to Via 1422 in Feb. 79;
to Via 6566 in May 1980.
February 1986: 6566 was destroyed at Hinton, Alberta. 
For 4066 in CP Rail 1977 service see pic id=1666.
October 1978 negative by S.Danko.
