VIA Rail and CP Rail Team Up To Pull Freight on the M & M Sub.

What--a VIA Rail FP40PH-2D pulling freight on CP Rail? Yes, and not just on my layout. In 1994-95 (the years I model), CP Rail leased a number of VIA units to haul freight trains. 

(See the John Reay photo of a leased VIA Rail unit leading a CP Rail eastbound at Newtonville, Ontario on for proof.)

So I thought I'd replicate that on the M & M Sub., using a couple of Athearn GP-38 units and a Spectrum unit. (Sorry, Jason; no Rapido Trains FP40PH-2 on my layout. At least, not yet.)
