The 4602, 9105 and 9192 have the usual 35 loads in tow. 3 GP38's can bring 50 loads back to Edmonton. The train has just crested the hill up from the Redwater river. It will now slowly descend over the next few miles to cross the Sturgeon river just before arriving at Gibbons. IMO, the zebra painted ex-NAR units looked their best when working with b-units.

  1. Very nice

  2. This is glorious. Matching stripes, all in good condition, and a great colour to boot. What kind of film did you use?

  3. Thanks Jamie and Steve. :-)
    I shot mainly Kodachrome 64. There were a few odd rolls of Kodachrome 25. It was so easy keeping a stock of film rolls, and dropping them off at the post office when full. 2 weeks later your slides would return. Given good sun, I found the film gave pleasing results. Of course I should mention how I worship my Nikon Coolscan that makes all this possible. :-)

  4. Another one of your incredible images, amazing

  5. Thanks Michael. :-)
