Dorval on Youtube

Two really great clips from Youtube. It’s super late here and I’m not listening with any sound on so my apologies if these have lousy sound.

CN Commuter Train in 1970

Dorval Winter 1977

LRC To The Rescue

Okay so I thought the video was really ironic evidence given that the whole reason to withdraw the LRC locomotives was their unreliable ALCo/MLW 251b prime movers and here we have a video where the thing is rescuing a dead F40 pulling a string of LRC coaches. The coaches are still in service and I anticipate riding in them in a couple of weeks first from Toronto to Ottawa and then from Ottawa to Montreal.
