Around Montreal - December 28th 1988
Author: 86235

A weeks holiday in and around Montreal over Christmas and New Year in 1988. As well as this day railfanning we also rode the Montreal to Quebec RDC via Trois Riviere.

1: Commuter train from Deux Montagne about to enter Mont Royal tunnel
2: Dorval on the STCUM commuter route with an RS18 subbing for the usual F unit.
3: Over on the adjacent CN line a VIA FP9 on no.32 from Ottawa.

4: My notes say this is no.1 the Montreal section of The Canadian
5: 6768 at Dorval heading to Montreal.
6: a few days later the snow had returned with a vengeance, this was the last shot I took, an EMU at Deux Montagne.

Nice series. I Always liked the box cabs pulling clerestory coaches. A little splash of 1961 paint on some vintage technology.

Love the steam heat. Well done.

Did you ride these services to get the thrash as well, or just take fots?

As I recall I rode the commuter trains.

Too freaky. The STCUM train looked awfully familiar, along with the weather, so I went back in my Logan files, and there it is, shot the next day. I came down from Ottawa with a couple of railfan buddies to see what we could shoot. I see I have scans, so I checked to see if I posted them up on an MLW Monday or not. There are two of them, at https://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?15,4416311,4416311#msg-4416311 and https://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?15,4451162,4451162#msg-4451162.
