For three years, more or less, we were treated to a twice daily   Canadian   on the Kingston Subdivision


   And at that time it was strange....and given the past year (2020) – and future year? ….that routing was just plain weird *


   A high green at CN Scarborough beckons  VIA's  three trains in one:


   The combined VIA Rail trains  #44  #2  #54:  a k a   Capital   Canadian  Canadien   Lakeshore


   On a hot humid hazy July 25, 1982 morning, Kodachrome by S.Danko


   noteworthy 


   *  Just like the ( 2021 planned )  continuing routing of  VIA Canadian  on CN lines


This is one of VIA's experiments to reduce transcontinental train costs, no twice daily Sudbury (on CP Rail) switching for the separate daily Toronto and Montreal sections: 82 83 84 the Ottawa valley trains were tri weekly Budd cars on CP Rail, Sudbury to Ottawa. By June 1, 1985 the twice daily  Sudbury switching resumed on the Toronto section trains #9 and #10 and Montreal's #1 & #2.


   More three in one:

    at  Scarborough
