Here we see a variety of paint schemes worn by VIA Rail units. In the foreground 6777 and a B unit are both still in CN paint not yet repainted. 6516 on a track behind them is in VIA paint with CN logo from the interim 1976-78 paint prior to the creation of VIA Rail Canada on April 1, 1978. Prior to that date CN painted passenger units in VIA paint scheme but with their own initials. Behind is another MLW covered wagon this one in full VIA paint and lettering. 6777 went on to wear the VIA blue and yellow paint scheme and years later another for its role in hauling tourists in the USA. CVSR 6777 in July 2006. Ron Visockis
