    Is that a NO? I mean I saw pictures of them in the US and Canada, but none survived?

    Any website dedicated to the Turbo?

    A Google search found a ton of sites...

    However, this one seems to indicate that all the trains were scrapped in the early 1980s with the coming of the LRC trains to VIA.

    Link didn't work properly with Netscape 4.7, but ok with IE 5.5

    I used

    - UA turbo

    - United Aircraft turbo train (go figure... ;))

    The second try got the link I gave you on the third page of results (I think).
