Tuesday Train #10


One Dies that another may Live.

VIA Rail LRC Locomotive 6919 at the Toronto Maintenance Centre in 2010.  The locomotive is on the verge of being scrapped, but before that occurred, volunteers from the Toronto Railway Museum were granted access by the scrapper to remove any parts we could to make sure we have a supply of spares for LRC 6917 that has been preserved by the museum.  As a result, since 2014 #6917 has been fired up semi-regularly to keep the mechanical systems healthy and is being worked on cosmetically to allow it to be run in the future for the public.  The image below is from the first 2014 test run around the VIA Toronto Maintenance Centre
