Edmundston Blog: 10 May 2016

Youtube is a wonderful resource. Here is our CN/VIA 4-8-4 sleeper Edmundston in service with Canadian National in 1973 in Washington DC surrounded by Penn Central GG-1 locomotives and passenger cars. Edmundston appears at around the eight and a half minute mark, but really you have to watch this video all the way through. What a fantastic record of a long lost era. Thanks to GMPullman for posting the video.

Fast forward 22 years and this excellent video from MrScoupi on Youtube also features Edmundston. The date is April 17th, 1995, and the location is Joliette, Quebec. Edmundston features towards the end of the 3:50 min clip but, again, its well worth watching the whole video for the glorious memories of VIA FP9As in action.
