The Discovery Train

The program was 32 pages, illustrated with paintings depicting the themes found in each car of the train. The program included two pages of photographs of items displayed on the train.

The front of the program featured a proposed steam locomotive (likely CN U-2-g 4-8-4 Confederation #6218), though no steam locomotive ever actually pulled the train.

The back of the program featured Canadian National 6060 -- the one steam locomotive named in the NMC proposal documents for the project.

It's the green locomotive at far right.
