To compete with CP's "Canadian" the Canadian National introduced "The Super Continental" on the same date as CP's "Canadian" although with smooth-side cars built by Canadian Car and Foundry and Pullman-Standard. It didn't have dome cars, either. Domes didn't appear on CN until they bought the Super Domes from the Milwaukee Road in c.1964.





Condolences to the Vine family.

You can still ride the all-Budd "Canadian" with domes across Canada. Via Rail Canada still operates this train, which was inaugurated by the Canadian Pacific on April 24, 1955.

Which, if read carefully, fits with one of this weekend's events.  Sorry not sorry.

I read that seeing a poster for this movie inspired Bruce Springsteen to write his song of the same name, though he hadn't actually seen the movie. I haven't seen the movie but it's a great song anyway.

A major hobby of mine is reading.  Here's a Garth Williams poster for Book Week 1955.
