Just outstanding.  Thank you for getting out there.

Are there any reports on work to be done on the cars in this extended "off season?"

Is this the first VIA #12 since December 16, 1994 when the last eastbound Atlantic ran from Montreal, across Maine USA and onto Saint John and Halifax? :)

It would have had a similar consist of F40s, Coaches, Skyline, Diner, Cheateau Sleepers and a Park Car.

Looks like the wrap covered the name on that unfortunate diner.

Who are those fans on the crossing at Haig, not practising social distancing?
