REMEMBERING THE TURBOTRAIN – HIGH-SPEED RAIL BETWEEN TORONTO & MONTREAL, 1968-84

It’s the closest Canada has ever come to high-speed rail.  The TurboTrain was one of the first tilting trains to enter service in both Canada and the United States.  The one above reached a top speed of 140 miles per hour, between Toronto and Montreal, in 1976.
