Via East Atlantic Ocean - Maritime MLWs - Revelation Video Two-Fer DVD
ATLANTIC OCEAN. Two train names which aptly blend with the Maritime region they serve. The first of these, as of May 1992, operates three days per week between Montreal and Saint John via CVs northern Main route, thence via CN to Moncton and Halifax. The Ocean, scheduled three alternate days between Montreal and Bahia, traces the all-CN route line along the St. Lawrence. Both trains feature coach, daynighter and sleeper accommodations, and offer full diners and the classic "Park" series dome observation lounges. In their final year of steam heat, F40s and generator-equipped FP9s provide motive power. Picturesque settings along the right of way compliment the on-train sequences. Nova Scotia's rugged beauty is appreciated from the cab - be warned though, if you are allergic to baby raccoons! Lush dairy farms, tidal fiats, jewel lakes, and the famous Reversing Rapids Bridge are among highlights enjoyed by passengers on these 14-car sold-out runs. A day trip through the Maritimes makes for a fun day - Fundy for short. So hop on for the very best of VIA EAST!
MARITIME MLWs (or, Atlantic Alcos) 60 minutes - live video. We're talking C630, C636, RS23 and MR14 here - plus a whole lot more! They love their Alcos out here. Add the new 2400-series GEs on the container hotshots and the domination of 4-cycle power is nearly complete.
With the sound of a steam doubleheader, a C630/C636 duo attacks the grade with gusto lugging a trainload of gypsum. By the way, we pay a visit to the rotary dumper and watch the rod-driven Hunslet switcher at Dartmouth. Back on the mainline, any Alcophile will delight in the smoke storm sequences!
CF affiliate Canadian Atlantic Railway negotiates the torturous Ocean Steel switchback in Saint John with a pair of RS23s. At the yard, CP and CN 8700-series Moncton rebuilds mix it up. A lone GM switcher pulls CP's last train into Halifax - and dies. As we said. here is a modern video for Alco enthusiasts.
