The "Montreal Limited", the overnight train from Albany to Montreal, has just crossed the CPR's St. Lawrence River
bridge and has another six miles to go to its destination at CPR's Windsor Station.. The D&H had trackage rights
on the CPR from Delson to Montreal. D&H 16 Train No. 9 actually is CPR Train No. 221 at this point.

RS-11 5008 (ALCO 83687 4/1961) and an RS-3 are ready to leave Windsor Station in Montreal on the Adirondack.
It departed westbound though Montreal West before turning southward on the Adirondack Sub. through Delson and then took the Lacolle Sub. towards the border enroute to New York. Note the train is running as an extra. Note too there are two units powering a three car train! The dome car at the left may be a Park car and is likely on No. 41 from Saint John, NB due to arrive at 0850 daily. In the background is the 40 storey Chateau Champlain of CP Hotels. 11/14/1974 James Gillin

Rare RS-36 (D&H had 12 of only 40 units built) 5020 (Alco 84402 2/63) and RS-3 1508 with the Adirondack approaching Montreal West. 11/12/1974 James Gillin

NOTE: Following the startup of Amtrak May 1, 1971 the two D&H passenger trains (Laurentian and the overnight Montreal Limited) between New York City (Grand Central Terminal) and Montreal (Windsor Station) were not included. Eventually, the State of New York provided a subsidy to restore passenger service on August 5, 1974. Adirondack
was the new name. Trains operated as Passenger Extras until the new CP employee time table #25 effective 4/27/1975.
Number 34 departed 0950 Daily while #35 arrived 2000 Daily.
