Last Sunday, I travelled from Ottawa to Quebec City via Montreal on the VIA1 for a week in QC on business. Not many photo ops between Ottawa and Montreal, but a real treat leaving Montreal. Normally, the trains from Quebec and Ottawa have to be wyed for their return trip, either on arriving or on leaving. In the case of the train to Quebec, the wyeing was done leaving Central Station. This took us right past the old Point Ste Charles (now Alstom) shops. There was quite a lineup of old locos. But first, some shots of the "Tank Train". I don't know the details but this is a unit tank train with connections between cars for quick unloading. Does anyone know what it is carrying and how it's unloaded?
