Memories of the Turbo Train and a Thanks to Normand

Hi Marty

 Thanks for posting the picture of the Turbo on a test run at St. Hyacinthe in 1967.

The pilot in that picture may well have been my dad, George Walsh.

I remember that he was the primary engineer on those early test runs and later worked on the regular runs for the Turbo and Rapido into Ottawa.

George built our home at 705 (27) Miller starting in 1947. The only house past Quicks barn on that side of Miller.

And thanks again to Normand for all of his hard work. His commentaries are informative and entertaining.

 

Dave Walsh.

Embro Ontario

Thanks Dave.
