What do it do
That sure beats me, Chris
Chris: I assume that it's a replacement for all those obsolete passemger cars that they used to use in work trains.
CP has 10 of them, all ex-vans.
420983 is ex-434621, blt 1979.
This was on the same track a little further down
Hi Dick, I thought it may have had some thing to do with the electronics with the off board cab control
Hi David, they sure have a nice clean BRIGHT looking unit now
Here is a possible mate for the van. Looks air conditioned too
#420983 is a caboose used on the M of W trains. The trailer on the flatcar is either a bunk unit or a kitchen unit that the M of W crews sleep and eat in. You only see them now in Northern Ontario where the rail line is far away from any road. And yes, they are air-conditioned. You can see the air-conditioning on the top of the roof.
If you take a trip on the VIA Budd car from Sudbury to White River, you'll run across a lot of work trains with these units. - both the caboose and the bunk/kitchen cars.
Thanks Bob That`s what I thought.
M W = ?????
