Rolling through Kelso Conservation Area, Extra 8785 west charges upgrade through Kelso with RS18 8785 and FPB-2 4466 up front.  Not much traffic can be seen passing Arawana Farms' barn on the 401 across Kelso Lake.  Built in 1958, 8785 would be rebuilt to CPR 1837 in 1987, and 1998 would be sold to the Minnesota Commercial Railroad as their number 83.  B-unit 4466, built 1953, is just a few years away from retirement in 1976.  It will meet the scrapper's torch shortly after.
