@BCR 570,

I sent you an email this morning with my choice of photo and caption for the magazine article.  I hope you receive it and can make use of my contribution.  Thanks for your efforts.

March 22, 2017 — Montreal Qc, Canada

After its stop in New York City, the Mike McGrattan Memorial Train was brought north to Albany NY. via the New York Central System, where it was handed over to the Delaware and Hudson Railway. Famed D&H Blue Bonnet PA1s pulled the train further north over the Adirondack subdivision through Rouse's Point NY and Delson Qc, before finally arriving in Montreal at Canadian Pacific Railway's Windsor Station. Unfortunately, much of this leg occurred at night under the cover of darkness, making it very difficult for photographs to be taken.

Early this morning, the multiple displays which are being carried in the baggage car were brought into the main concourse hall at Windsor station for public exhibition. The train was quickly backed 2 miles down to the Glen coach yards, where CPR's finest carmen and mechanics will perform a number of inspections and execute any necessary repairs to the consist under the watchful eye of the tour organizing committee. These men and women, who are usually assigned to the maintenance of the flagship trains such as The Atlantic Ltd., The Dominion and The Canadian, will ensure that the Memorial Train is in tip top shape before heading on to Toronto this Friday.

More to come over the next few days...
Because why not...
