Discussion of Canadian Passenger Rail Services such as AMT (Montreal), Go Transit (Toronto), VIA Rail, and other Canadian Railways and Transit

Everyone: Does anyone remember the small group of LRC cars that were originally Amtrak's and then used by VIA in "International" service?
I believe there were 10 of them-with features like two-pane windows and Amtrak-compatible HEP wiring.
There were two LRC locomotives also-originally used in NYP-BOS NEC service.
I remember VIA F40s pulling Superliner equipment also in this service.
Because of the differences between Amtrak and VIA HEP equipment there has been very little use of both companies' equipment in train service.

Yes, we do remember these. It has been an area of discussion here under the LRC rebuild program topic and also on the Amtrak forum in Amtrak LRC testing.
