VIA used the higher speed Turbos for a few trains a day between Montreal and Toronto in 1978.  Here we see a westbound almost at the end of it's trip near the Rouge River crossing west of Pickering.  It was a fun ride to snag a seat in the bubble and watch the speedometer push toward 100 mph for the just over 4 hour trip.

  1. Along with 100 mph, also meant to bring notice to the jointed rail.

  2. Very nice
