RDC..."Royal Diesel Car"
During May 1971 the Queen, Prince Philip and Princess Ann visit British
Columbia to mark the Centenary Anniversary of BC's entry into the Confederation
of Canada. CP Rail provided passage for Princess Ann from Nanimo to Victoria
on the E&N. Since the passenger stock on Vancouver Island consisted of Budd
Rail Diesel Cars one of course became the royal carriage. It ran as the first
section of the regular Dayliner south from Nanimo displaying green flags.

With the passing of Prince Philip, I thought I'd start a threat about royal
visits that included rail travel. I'm guessing that among us there just might
be some memories
