#1 The Canadian arriving with 1410_1406 newly painted. March 1974.
Note the Business Car behind baggage car.

The business car is the LAURENTIAN. Buck Crump used it for a number of years after retiring, yet stayed a CP board member. The car would be held in Calgary and he would use the car to go to Montreal or Toronto depending on where the meetings were held. One of my early jobs at CP was to pick Mr. Crump up at his home and drive him down to the car amongst other trips as instructed by the Division Superintendent. Doug Phillips
