THUNDER BAY, Ont. - VIA Rail is dismantling 33 British-built passenger cars that have sat idle at Keefer Terminal at the Port of Thunder Bay, CKPR News has reported. The seven cars are the last of a fleet of 139; the rest Bombardier refurbished at its plant here.
 
VIA bought the cars, originally intended for service in Britain's Chunnel, in 2001. The remaining cars will instead go toward maintaining the rest of VIA's "Renaissance" car fleet.
