In February 1987 the cold was brutal, reaching -25 to -35 degrees F for a solid week. Most of the F-units featured were removed from western Via Rail trains, but many soldiered on in the east for the winter of 1987. We enjoy several trains west of Toronto, on the lines to Stratford, and to London via Woodstock. Along the way we see a few newer units, including LRC’s which are now also a thing of the past. The power on the older units is primarily FP9, and Alco FPA-4 units. Most trains have steam heating cars as well.

We’ll see a few CP and CN freights along the way, plus visit the ONR yard at North Bay and a nice scene of a snow sweeper along the CPR at Dorval, clearing snow on a cold morning between scenes of commuter trains and VIA.
