The heritage of some equipment is evident as Via #1 The Canadian, with Via repainted ex CP Rail FP9A 1410 (plus ex CP Rail F7B 1905 and an ex CN steam generator), is on the CN Newmarket Subdivision at the approach to CN Bradford, April 22, 1979.
What's interesting: A basic one way fare to Toronto to Vancouver: $113.00; return trip: $150.00; lower berth (open section bed) one way surcharge over basic: $66.00 (sit down food and beverage service extra).

For a June 1979 view see    http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=6218

After Via removed CP trains 11 & 12 from the CP Rail Mactier Subdivision, October 1978, Via #1 & #2 The Canadian operated exclusively out of Toronto on CN west (north) to CN Boyne Bala Subdivision mile 146 (Parry Sound) then onto CP Rail to Vancouver.

(At that time Super Continental operated exclusively out of Montreal - even more interesting the Super C's Toronto connection was via North Bay trains #121 and #122 ! ).

Also: June 1979 Via abruptly flipped the Super C to Toronto only and The Canadian to Montreal only (see  http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=2439   and    http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=3178
