3rd QUARTER 2022: We introduce readers to VIA Rail Canada’s new fleet of Corridor trains in this issue. Built by Siemens, the first of these new bi-directional trains is currently undergoing testing over the busy Ontario and Quebec routes they fleet will serve. Also in this issue, we explore Portland Union Station in 1968, continue a travel report from aboard the Lake Shore Limited and Empire Builder, and take a look back at EMD’s early passenger diesels. All this and more in the 2022-3 issue of Passenger Train Journal!
