Passengers on observation platform
Publicity photo showing well-dressed men and women on the open platform of the observation car of the Canadian National Railways' Confederation passenger train in 1927. The train was a new service started in that year, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. It replaced the National as trains three and four on the timetable. The National ran between Toronto and Winnipeg, but the Confederation ran all the way from Toronto to Vancouver.
