In August 1984, on my first solo visit to Montreal I spent an afternoon at Central Station hanging around in the tower and photographing train-movements in and out of this busy terminal.
Among the numerous fascinating photos I made that day was this view of CN multiple unit 6749 with a commuter train to/from Duex Montagnes, Quebec.
Today, old CN 6749 is Conway Scenic Railroad’s Mount Webster, a snack car known to employees as ‘the table’ car since it was retrofitted with tables and a snack counter.
I spent Monday measuring and mapping this same car to prepare seating charts for Conway Scenic’s 2020 season.
I never could have imagined on that August day so long ago that I’d be working with 6749 in New Hampshire.
Same car; different time.
