Throwback Thursday - Voiture D'Evaluation de la Voie

Track Evaluation Car CP 64 poses in front of the station at Havelock, Ontario on July 17, 1995.
By Peter Mumby.
The panel at the other end of this car reads "Engineering Services Track Evaluation Car," so you don't have to look far if you need an English translation.  CP 64 was originally a passenger car belonging to FEC.  A Pullman Standard product of 1954, subsequent owners included SCL and Amtrak.  An electronics guru could have a field day modelling the various lights and markers on the business end  of this piece of equipment.
