In July 1984 I transferred from Sydney, Nova Scotia to Edmonton, Alberta. The weather was mostly miserable as I drove through New England and across Quebec, north on Highway 117 to see what was in Senneterre (just because I could), through Noranda and Cochrane and finally along the north shore of Superior to Thunder Bay where the sun came out for a bit. I've looked at the map but I'm not sure exactly where this was taken, it's somewhere near the docks at a CN yard office. The 1900s were the primary transfer power around Thunder Bay in those days so if you wanted to see them that's where you went. After driving all day from Cochrane under cloudy skies the sun broke out and treated me to a rainbow over two pairs of 1900s.
