A warm July evening in Schreiber finds the "29B", dubbed locally as the "Superior Flyer" stopped at the station having completed an evening run west to Gravel and return. The crew reminisces over the radio of the old days when they would spot up the Canadian just like this while passengers disembark after an evening run to Gravel. Once the all clear is given, the train will proceed to tie down for the night in the yard. The following morning they will run east to Coldwell and return with another run west to Gravel in the evening and return. This was a 3 day excursion for CP employees based out of Schreiber, all organized for the 125th anniversary of the driving of the Last Spike.
