Anybody ever see the original poster behind this Rapido shirt? I'd love a copy some day.

Tad:

Yes - this was one of the promotional items used by CN to promote the Toronto-Kingston-Montreal Rapido service
that used the United Aircraft Turbo Trains. I remember the distinct color brochures that were related and that the
currently stored NRHS Library Ephemera files had information like this on the UA Turbos as part of their collection.
The original poster dates from the early 1970s before the days of VIA which began as a CN-CP partnership in 1976.
