The International is minutes out of Union Station on its way to Chicago, and is about to pass under Bathurst Street. I've always regretted not taking this train the distance. Georgetown is as far as I got. Note: The staircase on a Superliner was designed for people of slim girth.

  1. Looks like the third coach is an ex-ATSF Hi-Level car.

  2. I remember this period well – 85 ran around 0800-0900 period on my commute to work from Guelph to Waterloo so I photographed it numerous times. The Dash 8 period ended sometime in 2001 and never came back but it was Superliners in the winter and Amfleet in the summer with a transition in spring/fall. The power schemes were also of much variety since Amtrak still hadn’t repainted the P42 fleet completely. I’ll have a look at my superliner shots but i’m pretty sure the ex ATSF superliners made irregular but frequent appearances.

    Also of note 85/88 also had American crew in the dining/snack car on alternating days – which meant they were a US operation (US Dollars in Canada) and on VIA crew days it was a Canadian operation (with VIA supplied food). American snack bar crews had a layover in Toronto. Running trades did not run through to Canada or vice versa though.
