VIA Power Cab #153 ( United Aircraft / MLW 1967 * ) is in charge of VIA train #61


 a k a Turbo ( UACL / MLW 1967 * ), three train sets,  was a regular sight on VIA trains #60, 61, 66, 67 twenty four trips per week. 


 Replaced in 1982 by the LRC 6900 series locomotives and 3300 series LRC coaches...such is progress.

November 4, 1978 at Newtonville Road bridge, CN Belleville Sub mile 280.6,  on Kodachrome 64 film transported by a **Nikkormat EL, photo  by S.Danko  


( *  THAT is a unique Builder combination)


( ** the EL is in service today, reserved for the occasional excursion....try that forty years from now with one of today's fancy di-gi-tal's ! )


 (  this is an experimental K64 slide, taken with a newly acquired used Nikkor 28mm F2.8  lens, a true, fast wide angle lens  - had to wait two weeks for the K64's return to see the outcome)


 What's  Turbo  Interesting – a nice break from the constant parade of FP9A's and FPA4's ( ! ! )


 1977: Montreal to Toronto  335 miles, two scheduled stops, 4 hours 10 minutes Central to Union


 1977:  average speed 80.3 m.p.h.  On jointed rail. 


 By 1980: Turbo slowed to 4 hours 30 minutes with three scheduled stops. 


 October 31, 1982: all Turbo's retired.
