Long VIA

VIA 913 and 904 at Whitby with train 60

Most of the time, VIA trains in the Corridor are pretty uniform.  They are usually 3-5 coaches long and often identical consists for several days running.  Today was a little different.  I got a tip-off through the Canadian Passenger Rail Yahoo Group that VIA 70 (Windsor-Toronto) was unusually long this morning, with extra coaches (including VIA lounge Glen Fraser) and two locomotives.  After its arrival in Toronto, VIA 70 becomes VIA 60 (Toronto-Montreal), running through Whitby, thus allowing me to photograph it.  I was able to catch this interesting consist on what was a beautiful, albeit warmer summer day.
