"Take advantage of the opportunities afforded to you." A field trip to Sarcee yard in Calgary to experience what railroading was about, a walk about the property and through a couple yard units including the CN 7061. While doing our walkabout Edmonton to Calgary manifest A442 arrived. Normally a nocturnal arrival into Sarcee, I recall the crew was a recrew and had been on duty close to 10 hours by the time they arrived. Here CN SD70i 5608 and CN GP40-2W 9555 run by after setting their train off into the yard. Within a few minutes the crew will park on the shop track closest to CN 7061 and the crew will end their all night long excursion over the Three Hills Sub and report off duty.
