I do not have many photos that show the doors open on the elevators, as well as able to see right through, as in this case. This is also one of the few pictures where I included the Redwater section shack in the photo. 584 is lead today by the 1077, 1069 and 1078, with cab 79836 bringing up the rear. The marks of unloading molten sulphur tanks in the early 80's into tank trucks is still very evident. The elevator track would have a number of tanks spotted for offloading on occasion. By 1983/84 this came to an end and the only sulphur traffic that remained was the bright yellow chips in the open hoppers passing by from Fort McMurray.
