Another View of Riding The Canadian from Winnipeg to Vancouver

My train, leaving Portage la Prairie.

While travelling on VIA from Winnipeg to Vancouver in May, I was in the Park car at the end of the train (sitting in the dome) as we went through Portage la Prairie, MB. 

The tracks pass beneath an bridge in that town that is a favorite with railfans. One of the railfans who likes to photograph trains from the bridge is my friend Manny Jacob. Manny happened to be on the bridge the day our train passed through Portage, and got these two photographs.

I'm in the dome, somewhere!

  1. Neat to see the Canadian at Portage. Check out the differences looking west from the Tupper Street overpass, 1978:

    Thanks for sharing, John.
