Via # 1 at Kamloops BC
Author: Train611

Hello to all...Happy Canada Day Weekend!
We have had some excellent weather in Kamloops.
When it is nice...IT IS NICE!
On June 29 I managed a couple of images of Via # 1 around Kamloops BC.
1. 3 units (6446-6421-6438) and 21 coaches are about 5 miles east of Kamloops.
2. Via # 1 stops at 1944k...76 " off the scheduled arrival time.
3. After a fuel top-up and a crew change Via # 1 was off to Vancouver.
The quiet evening on the North Thompson River allowed for a close-to-perfect mirror image.

Thanks for looking.

Interesting how VIA still uses the F40, and how good they look, vs AMTRAK's dumping them en masse.

As VIA Rail has rebuilt all of their F40's, there is no reason to retire them.

Congratulations on IOTD; the bridge shot is more obvious, but I love the approach shot to Kamloops. Every trip I've made to the area, I see this generic potential leaving/entering town, but we're never in a position to set up and wait. So this is beautifully visualized ahead of time, and well done!

21 "coaches"? No sleeper passengers or food service cars in the consist?

Thanks, you beat me to it........the point being this train has 21 CARS, which include two COACHES.  At least they weren't termed "carriages".

It takes three consists to maintain the full Toronto-Vancouver cycle in this summer's schedule (which also sees Trains 3-4 operating only between Vancouver and Edmonton).  Panorama cars are used in only two of those three consists, but they make the full run between the two end points, rather than being used solely between Edmonton and Vancouver as in years past.
