Via in the Rockies

Via train # 2 east of Lake Louise Alberta in May 1986
Nice shot, Claude. Don't you wish for the old FP and FA days.......Earl
p.s. what was the lead unit number?
Yes I surely do miss those days and the chant of 567's in the 8th notch.
The lead unit was Via 6304 which was re-manufactured from CN 6509 in 1984 & designated FP9Au.
Excellent photo! I'm a newcomber here and I didn't break through all the photos yet but I can say that your gallery is really amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us!
