In order to show my railfan acquaintance how one can chase a train from the summit of Kicking Horse Pass all the way to Golden - the area covered by his planned guide, we decided to chase this train. The next several photos were all taken from roadside locations. This was our ninth shot, taken at pretty much the same spot as the eighth. As I said earlier, there was just about everything on this train, including 5 vans. We did not give chase into Golden as the photo ops are few, and are dangerous to access. Stopping along that stretch of road was not a good idea, nor was having to cross the road to get the view. There are a few places where photos may be had, but they are best left for eastbounds.
