6133 Blog: 26 July 2018

With Edmundston taking up all the spotlight (and physical labour) as of late, we decided to throw in a quick little update on 6133.

While our railway equipment whisperer Chris Fox was working on the B-end washroom of 6133, after removing a wall panel, he found the original patent plates from the construction of 6133.

It seems as though when VIA or IRSI was last working on the car, they had removed the plates and subsequently forgotten about them. Talk about opening King Tut’s tomb. Well, maybe not that amazing, but still an incredible find. These will ultimately be displayed in full view for the riding public as the restoration continues.
