  1. That ‘air’ even looks heavy. I’ll take your word for it that it was muggy. :o ) Could not tolerate those days.
    Of interest to me was all the paint changes over the years with this and other VIA locomotives. I remember 6532 in CN colours, then that trial scheme of grey/gold; now this scheme, and wondered if it ever got ‘VIA’ painted on the nose before it got renumbered and then wrecked?
