Doing a reconnaissance trip a few weeks prior to the Inaugural run paid big dividends.  2816 had a tight schedule of "appearances" at towns between Vancouver and Calgary, and they couldn't dawdle to allow the film crew to catch up. We had our spots planned, and with no small amount of hectic scrambling and driving we usually made it.  
One bonus at Eldon, to the west of Banff,  was finding a Westbound tucked away in the siding awaiting 2816's passage.
