The "Last Train Through the Fort" is on the way to the new bridge, loaded with many people. After today this portion of the Veg. Sub. will become an industrial spur line. The many rail crossings in downtown will be torn up and to the delight of many Fort residents, no more horn blowing. Just as I was getting all set up for photos here, an Edmonton Journal photographer approached me and asked if I minded his taking photos of my son and I for the paper. I said sure, be my guest, and as the train passed we had our pictures taken. Next day, checked the paper and there were our smiling faces for the "Last Train Through the Fort" article. The oddest thing that has ever happened to me when out train chasing.
