    Default VIA Rail help please

    Hi everybody.

    This searching for Rolling Stock Is certainly an art form.

    I Have been searching most of the Morning for Via Rail Rolling Stock.

    Have tried :- VIA, VIA Rail, VIa Canada, VIA Canadien, CP RAiL, all in Capitals and Lower Case.

    Apart the fact their Blue & Yellow and I have used them before, I am having no luck.

    Any help please ?

    Thanks

    Paul.

    Hi Eric, many thanks for help.

    Unfortunately, File only contains Five Items, none of which I have used before.

    Original search was something like VIA Rail Canada and the File I do remember had a Picture of Toronto on it.

    Thanks

    Paul.

    There is also a United Aircraft Turbo Train. If you do a search for "Turbo", there is a replacement sound package on page 1, and the turbo train models on page 5.

    Search for the file viafpa4.zip

    I have a folder called GB_ViaPass that has the entire VIA Canadian. I'm not sure where I got it from but the problem is is that the zip file had a completely different name then the folder that came out of it and I haven't guessed what that would be. At one time there were individual VIA Canadian cars in the library here. The 1955 CPR Canadian cars are still here but not the VIA cars.

    Paul :-)

    Those nice via cars were linked to the VIA web site. It took you to GB Trains, and they were free at that time. Gaeten made some great Canadian themed models, and I believe they are still available as payware at his site. Apparently all that is still showing up is the Valleypass Site, which I believe is just payware.

    If you want some really good VIA Rail models and downloads I highly recommend trainsimulations.net
    Old railfans never truly die. They Just lose track.
