  1. Wow. Just wow.

  2. Dave: Yes
    Jacob: When Fed’s bought grain hoppers as a subsidy under Crow Rates, both Sask. and Alta. bought hoppers also. As this was a Govt of AB sponsored run they put together a train of export wheat entirely of Alberta owned hoppers

  3. Looks like Heritage Fund. Train was probably sponsored by the Alberta Gov’t

  4. What are the hoppers for? Expo ’86 paint scheme?
