Running eastward, north track, splitting the signals at mile 4.9 Dundas Sub  we see an odd combination of GO 906, Bi-levels and VIA 6412 on the rear.  This odd combination and many like it were on account a broken axle on an LRC coach, and as a result all LRC coaches came off for emergency repairs leaving VIA scrambling for cars. So numerous GO bi-levels were pressed into service. On the right is old Hwy 8 snaking up the hill towards West Flamborough. Hard to believe this collection is VIA #72.

  1. They have different voltages. VIA uses 480 volts to match Amtrak’s HEP, while GO uses 575 volts.

  2. The ACPU appears to be on line? Are VIA LRC’s and GO double deckers different voltages? Different electrical connectors?
