Re: VIA 79 and 70.

Shot this one at Snake on Saturday - it was smoking badly and throwing oil. 
Wonder how long until the turbo blows.

Passengers back on track

UPDATED: 2006-05-29 16:39:08 MST

Passengers of derailed Rocky Mountaineer to be offered compensation for 
their inconvenience

By BILL LAYE, CALGARY SUN

Passengers from a luxury train derailed in the Rockies were back on track 
today and will be offered compensation for their inconvenience, says a 
company official.

No one was hurt when six cars on the Rocky Mountaineer jumped the tracks in 
B.C. between Golden and Revelstoke about noon Sunday - and the 563 
passengers and crew aboard were quickly bussed to Kamloops, said Graham 
Gilley of Vancouver-based Rocky Mountaineer Vacations.

After spending the night, half of those got on another train to Vancouver 
while the others were bussed the rest of the way.

The scenic two-day Calgary-Westcoast train trips range in price from $650 to 
$1,400 and Gilley said some sort of a refund or alternate travel will be 
offered, depending on each passenger's individual situation.

"We built our business one customer at a time and we will certainly treat 
them fairly," Gilley said, adding many who take the trip are from overseas.

"We've had cases where there was maybe a slide in front of the train or some 
track-work being done and we've always taken care of our guests to their 
satisfaction."

I'm glad that no one was hurt. However, I'm having trouble working up any

Re: Chaleur trip report

Thanks Tom for your trip report. I was happy to read that some track 
work is still being done. I have always worried about this train's and 
route's survival.
