Certainly one of the shortest VIA #9,


All Budd (built for CPR): baggage, coach, Skyline, 2 Manor sleeping cars, and Assiniboine Park 


GMD 1954 built FP9A 6510 leads the daily VIA #9, the Toronto section of the Canadian Canadien, to a 19:50 arrival at CPR Sudbury to meet with daily Train #1 originating from Montreal CN Central station where #9 will be combined with the Montreal coach, the dining car and the Montreal sleeping car.

More Don: Canadian Canadien: 


       FP9A 6510  


That automobile, with the bashed in driver door, is motoring on the Bayview Extension and is likely a late seventies (1978) Oshawa built Pontiac LeMans / Oldsmobile Cutlass / Chevrolet Chevelle.

  1. I remember those short off-peak “Canadians” in early VIA days. A couple of times I went all the way to Vancouver with only a Skyline car as a diner. In the mid to late 1970s the CPR Canadian was even shorter. The typical consist of the Toronto section (#11 & 12) was baggage, coach, Skyline, diner and one Chateau sleeper. I missed the Park car very much, but at least it always had a diner.
