By 1980  five of the nineteen daily southwestern Ontario VIA trains were designated ' Tempo '


  Ex CN Tempo train, VIA train 73 on the approach to the London Depot, January 17,1981 Kodachrome by S. Danko 

  
   Interesting that, to my knowledge, none of the six 3150 series HEP equipped MLW RS-18m ( m = modified for Tempo) locomotives were repainted in VIA livery. All retired by 1983.

  
   Ex Ski Train 17 (?) Tempo cars ( and three F40PHR locos) re-acquired by CN 2009 for the Agawa Canyon Tour train. Recent (March 2021) news is that there may be a new operator - WATCO - for the presently suspended – since spring 2020 - ACR line including the ACR tour train.
