Train 904 was an expedited train originating at Windsor, Ontario. Its core function was to relay traffic originating in the US upper mid-west to New England, primarily Maine Central and Boston and Maine. The rate structure made it practical to route traffic between US points via Canada. Along with international traffic, the train could be filled out to include loads originating in the US Pacific Northwest.

Thank you. This is beautiful. What make your submissions so special is their infrequency, and that you take the space to educate us about the history behind the shot, instead of wasting it bragging about your skills at monkeying around with the subject. You are the Jedi Master. 🛤🏴‍☠️
