After chasing the GWR to Verwood and checking out the Poplar River Mine Railway's new unit in Coronach, I was out of things to do in the Assiniboia area. It was a nice late afternoon so I made the jaunt back up to CP's Swift Current Sub to take in some westbounds in nice sunny conditions. I had scoped this spot a couple of days prior but the clouds/sun did not cooperate with the trains that day, so I wanted to try again. Luckily for me, 669 (unit potash loads) was along not too long after and this day, the sun cooperated. I have to say, I love this overpass in the middle of nowhere. Pretty sure I saw about three other cars in two or so hours. This is a few miles east of Mortlach, where several days earlier I shot 851 going into the hole in front of the old Paterson elevator, which already no longer stands (confirmed by Matt Watson here).
