Passenger Car Painting


(published 1983) (reprint 2005)

A 136 page photo and graphic illustration book on VIA Rail Canada's locomotive and passenger car fleet to 1983. Drawings have been re-arranged horizontally with photos below in many cases. The drawings show the passenger cars as they were in the early days of VIA as well as many of the rebuilds and new cars up to the 1982/83 period.  This new format permitted including additional photos that were not seen in the original edition

References on the drawings give the VIA data as well as CN and CP original data and in several cases the original US owner of many cars, especially so for the CN smooth side and SS cars

For the 2005 Reprint the original use of landscape arragement fpr the car drawings was discarded and material modified to permit fitting on a portait format page that allowed for the insertion of relative car photos on the drawing pages as well as the facing pages as well

Many tourists from Europe as well as Australia have called and written about finding their cross Canada holiday car with their section, bedroom, compartment or drawing room in this book and how nice it was to share this information with their friends upon returning home.
