Vraiment. The ex-Amtrak/Ski Train F40 looks good in the Algoma Central paint scheme.

Nice! Does the train to Hearst also use this equipment or is it still using CN geeps and legacy cars?

The new logos look similar to the pictures so I think these new coaches will apply to the regular service to Hawk Junction, Dubreuilville & Hearst. Confirmation needed though.

Beautiful equipment and an extremely industrious project. You'd be unlikely to see that here in the states.

I did get a chuckle out of the press release sentence
"The day-long round trip travels through the lakes, rivers, granite rock formations and mixed forest . . . "
Hope the cars have flotation devices!
