Hudson Bay Photos From 1994

I stumbled across these photos by Jim Bissell of VIA's Hudson Bay train at this site. I like seeing the old blue and yellow colours.

Nice VIA photos, Steve. Is it possible that tail-end car is private car Caritas?http://highirontravel.com/caritas2.htm
shows the car, with its wide red stripe, and it was also in Canada in 1995. The CP cars should have been repainted by then. On that site, did you notice 6765 in b&w? I noticed the VIA IC3 demo at Kingston.
