VIA In Color The First 25 Years – 1976-2001
The first-ever all-color tour of VIA Rail Canada, covering the system’s first 25 years from its beginnings as a Canadian National subsidiary to its role as the Crown corporation responsible for Canada’s intercity passenger train network. Emphasis is on VIA’s early years, when equipment inherited from CN and CP was merged in a period of remarkably colorful operation. Coverage extends through the 1980s and 1990s, when VIA introduced its first new equipment in the form of lightweight LRC trainsets and F40PH-2 diesel locomotives.
