Most observant !!!!Blue?
I see dove grey.
Only the 1939 Royal Train was blue and stainless steel - Accucraft also make a model of that, too, and it is just soooooooooooooooooooooooo gorgeous.....
I just noticed that in your top photo the loco is set up for reversing - was this for a photo run-by?

Well there were quite a few runbys so it probably was
We travelled a few hundred miles a day from Calgary to Vancouver
I had a habit of taking stills when The train was reversing and video the actual run past
I think “our Consist” may also have been setting back for the vintage diesel train (F7 leading) to take a particular track in the yard/station area and pass our train
I think it was hauling a bunch of CPR customers on a jolly
They had the heavyweight cars mainly
I wish we’d had longer in Vancouver to travel and see the Preserved Royal Hudson too
But work meant flying back to the UK
