Not really but the people who run the Canadian Passenger Rail Yahoo group must think so as they have booted me off the list for making fun of the VIA banana skin wraps of their locomotives for Canada’s 150 birthday. They refuse to admit that VIA blew it and that wrap was intended for VIA 40’s anniversary that is next year. It seems in March somebody at VIA finally realized they had done nothing for Canada’s 150 so they rushed out the 40th wrap and slapped a 150 banner on it.
They covered all the few Canadian flags that were on the LRC coaches and there is not one to be found on the wrapped equipment and this is supposed to be the 150th Canada wrap. How can you have a wrap that is celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with no Canadian Flags and no red or white? Of course it was designed in Montreal so I guess we should have expected this. Not sure when silver and yellow became Canada’s colours but they could have done so much better.
I guess their discussion group does not allow for discussion and everything has to be to their liking or you are nothing but a trouble maker. That is okay I have better things to do than care what car numbers are on the Canadian. I always wondered what do people even do with that info. Okay to maybe have one or two but every one. They need to get a life.
Enough of that, rainy and cloudy again but I have a great day, I intend to. 🙂
