Discussion of Canadian Passenger Rail Services such as AMT (Montreal), Go Transit (Toronto), VIA Rail, and other Canadian Railways and Transit

NS: Good information concerning Canada's new $10 bill here...

This will become another rail "collectible" and help VIA Rail Canada's "Canadian" gain exposure to Canadians
and others by way of legal currency...

See: http://www.bankofcanada.ca for more information on their new and current currency series...
Look in the "Bank Notes" section...
Their polymer notes are so much more interesting then what the US issues in the same denominations...

Eastern Railroad News wrote:VIA Rail recently renumbered the F40PH #6403 that appeared on the bills, saying that it did so prior to the release of the currency and effective July 23, 2013. The renumbering of the #6403 to 6459, according to VIA Rail, was done to "retire that number as to prevent any negative historical stories if ever one day there was one to be associated to this locomotive identification."
