Rare Mileage for VIA Patrons as #75 and #79 combined travel over the normally freight only CNR Halton subdivision on a hazy, foggy day July 9 2013. Due to a washout on the Oakville sub VIA trains had to re-route. In the background is an aldershot-milton local servicing industries nearby and of course the hazy escarpment. We've been treated with VIA re-routes on the Halton sub about once a year ever since, plenty of time and opportunity to get this again. For the railway employees - would this train have required a CN pilot?

  1. Yes. Many times but not often in Daylight (since it’s in Darkness in winter)

    I know some who have got it but I have not yet.

  2. has VIA 97/Amtrak 63 ever rerouted on CN? I am dying to see that!

  3. A good catch for sure.
    As to the question about the pilot. It would all depend on the crew on the VIA train. If they were former CN employees that ran over that sub for years, then probably no pilot. If it a newer engineer then definitely a pilot.

  4. Great shot Steve
