Beautiful image Tim! The VIA paint livery does the F40PH-2s justice.

Great shot Tim! I think they could use more power though.

How many passenger cars were on the train?

Nice shot Tim! I think that might set a few records for number of units on a VIA...

Stu, there were 28 coaches on this train. The most I've ever seen is 30.

Likewise tim likewise!!!! And Tim the most cars was on my train in July was 35 but the had to knock 2 off in winnipeg because it couldn't fit into the station. My question is why there are so many engines on the train? the most i have ever seen is 3 on the Canadian

David Wheeler: there are so many engines because they must provide employment to everybody, that's how it is in Canada :-)

Although I like "Reddy's" explanation, this train had 5 units for a purpose. 6446, the second unit in the consist, had some sort of mechanical problem on the previous to the previous #1. It was set off en-route and was lifted by this train. It is enroute to Vancouver to get additional work. The train left Toronto with 4 units likely to help out with a future eastbound out of Vancouver. There are a few units out of service in Vancouver which is why the extra power is needed there.
