Here's a good healthy looking CN westbound on a rather nice mid-November day. Judging by how high the sumac is in this image, I would imagine the next year was the last for shooting this full curve.  It doesn't take long for sumac to grow, and it was impossible to hack some of this down because of the steep slope it is growing on. There were 90 cars of mixed freight on this train, with caboose #79337 on the rear. Power up front,three widecabs and three geeps. CN 9455, 9505, 9446, 4519, 4566 and 4565.
The Canada Crushed Stone overhang in the extreme background is still intact, despite the operation having been shut down around 5 years previous.
