Yes I am aware of that. But there has been no other movement through that area AFAIK so the consist that derailed had to be that one, not a rake of VIA Rail cars. If there was there would no doubt be photos online and /or videos on YouTube by now.

Not bad, but I prefer the Brightline and long distance Amtrak ALC-42 variants. This one looks like it's missing a piece in the middle!

Not 100% perfect (I think a very dark green window band would have been a better fit vs black), but I LOVE the bold new look for the new trains. The VIA SC-44s blow away every other Charger livery to date (though the Metro-North unit renderings are not far behind).

The VIA RAIL CANADA letterboard on the coaches is a nice touch. Now if they'd only stuck with that spruce green instead of black...

Agreed on both. The letterboards are a nice touch though the green would be a better look for VIA and more properly reflective of Canada than even the original blue and yellow livery colors.
