Budd Rail Diesel Car

The passenger trains of my youth. We rode these things from Sault Ste Marie in the sixties returning from vacation, and commuting to Toronto from Kingston in the eighties under the Via logo in their neighbourly early morning train service. Art by Leslie Ragan.
I thought that all the RDCs had been retired but it appears they still have a future. Via is rebuilding their fleet.

This unrelated picture of a privately owned RDC in storage was taken in Orangeville in 2006.

And one of two ex CP cars at Rail Expo in St. Constant Qc.
