VIA Rail LRC 6917 Lives!!!!!!!!!!!

After the TRHA worked tirelessly to save one of the last LRC locomotives in existence they didn't rest on those laurels; they took the next step. Led by Chief Mechanic Chris Fox, Rapido's own Jason Shron and Dan Garcia and with the support of so many volunteers and financial contributors the LRC was brought back to life....

I am proud to present the first trip of an LRC in over ten years; 6917 lives; it is fully functional and now is awaiting a new paint job.... We Saved the LRC !

Bravo Zulo to Chris, Jason, Dan, the volunteers and the TRHA!
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Wow ! this is great !
These LRC cars will be a lot easier to do for you guys since the bottom ( under car ) is almost flat judging by the video took between the rails at the end .
Thanks ,
Louis
