  1. Superb CNR.

  2. This is the way CNR trains should look. Most beautiful continuous paint scheme in railroading.

  3. Per Ian Wilson’s book “Speed Graphics and Steam 1957,” number 11 sets off a block of coaches at Guelph during warmer months, and Stratford in cooler months as the latter can provide steam heat to the cars.
