  1. I was thinking 4 tracks the whole way. Premium service on the inner, pedestrian on the outer. Truck and trailer together with rest coaches behind the engines for those that couldn’t handoff to a fresh driver at the other end. 100 car maximum. Then again, I think all oil should be shipped by rail because that actually creates jobs.

  2. Haha Dave, a wonderful dream my friend. If only it was reality!

  3. Your running commentary here reminds me of when CP’s Ritchie was claiming the railroad could triple-track the GALT sub and take a lot of trucks off the 401. Nothing happened. The trailers are gone west of Hornby. Maybe HE wasn’t sober. :o )

  4. My dream is still that the government forced trans-provincial trucks onto the railroad with every half hour service from Coteau to Windsor at 70. No, really, I’m sober :)

  5. Haha..ok we can pretend. LOL the 70mph can only be done on the Kingston Sub on certain trains

  6. Yes but you can pretend otherwise…..and pretend it’s doing 70+

  7. Oh some very interesting calls :-) You can bet that 2 of those units were in idle.

  8. And some very amusing calls I suspect. Nice to see 4units on a train again…….

  9. Great shot. Love the old telephone box in the picture. I remember when we used those to talk to the RTC. Good memories.
