It looks like VIA #73, with 6424, is late heading westward, as #72 with VIA 6458 is due at Aldershot 1309. The timetable I have closest to this date shows #73 due at Brantford 1310. Anyway, it made for a nice afternoon surprise off the hillside at what used to be known as Hamilton West to the fans.

  1. Nice shot.

  2. Fabulous! Classic VIA. I never really understood the original F40 scheme; it didn’t really mesh with the LRC coaches and it certainly didn’t match the dark blue and yellow heritage fleet. Seemed to always look slightly dirty also.
