Electronic artist Skrillex likes to travel by train, so when it came time to plan another cross-Canada tour, he opted to ditch the jet and the tour bus in favour of a chartered VIA train. The last time this happened, back in 2012, I didn't see the train. This time I did.
Unlike the previous tour, the Full Flex Express is operating as part of scheduled VIA trains, including 61, which is pictured at Whitby en route to the evening's performance at Toronto's Echo Beach. The front of the consist was the standard train 61, with the second locomotive and stainless steel forming the tour train.
