VIA Rail FP9A 6300 awaits the 9 pm departure on a Saturday evening late in April 1990 of #92 for Winnipeg, 1000 miles and 35 hours to the south.  Trailing 6300 is another FP9A, two steam generators, three flat cars each equipped with steam pass-through lines and each carrying a highway trailer, one baggage car, one coach, one dining car and one E-class sleeping car.  6300, which was badly damaged in the 1986 Hinton collision, ended its working days as the shop switcher at VIA's Vancouver Maintenance Centre.  It is now in the possession of the BC Chapter of the National Railway Historical Association, in New Westminster, BC.
