Simply the best.  Introduced by the CPR in 1955.   “ The Canadian ” , a World Class train.  And for a while CP Rail continued that tradition ..... shown in the final year.....1978 ........then the Via'ized version.....well, you know the history. August 1978 was an interesting time: the Chateau sleeper in front of the Skyline Dome is in coach service due to extra passenger demand generated by an air traffic disruption. 
GMD built CP Rail FP9A #1406 – #1414  powers  CP Rail train #11  on the approach to Palgrave  August 26, 1978.  Kodachrome by S.Danko.

  1. I love this photo! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Amazing shot Steve! True 1970′s Canadian rail-roading and photography at it’s best. In 1988 I was fortunate enough to ride the 1988 VIA version across Canada before the re-routing. A trip of a lifetime and a lifetime of memories! – Ken Pieroway
