(this is an update to my last post about a planned Montreal railfan trip)
Train number 15 the Ocean will depart [Halifax] at 12:35 P.M., Saturday, April 19th and arrive in Montreal on Sunday, April 20th at 8:15 A.M.. On arrival in Montreal the group will travel to the C.A.D. plant for a three-hour tour. The C.A.D. facility is where VIA Rail is modernizing the F-40 engines and is a very large group of buildings. After the tour a high traffic spot for picture taking will be on the agenda with a return to the Montreal train at 5:00 P.M. for a 6:30 P.M. departure. HEP equipment will run both ways with this being the last set coming into Halifax. There will not be a Dome car on the train but the Sky car will be in use.
