  1. In 2011, 20 years (almost to the day) after Bill’s photo, unit coal trains were still pounding the rails near Coronach, SK.

  2. Mark, they have two SD40-2s (at least they did last I checked in the Fall) and recently acquired a GP35 as well: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=38978

  3. Thats awesome Bill, great catch! I doubt many people even know this exists. I’d be curious to see if the railway aspect carries on today like we see above, but looks like for the time being the power plant is still going but potentially not for too much longer: https://globalnews.ca/news/5915294/coronach-saskatchewan-economic-future-coal/

  4. Wow!
