The crew of the 8800 are turning their units on the wye at Bretville Jct. After stopping, getting lined up and a light, they will proceed to Clover Bar yard. Waiting in the distance, on the other side of the river at Bailey, is a lumber train. After the lumber train departs, an IM from the Camrose Sub. arrives and continues to Walker yard. Within minutes, another east bound of empty hoppers on the Wainwright Sub. goes by. It was early on a Sunday and already it was shaping up to be a busy morning.

  1. Nice scene.

  2. Thanks Michael. :-)
    There is only a few short weeks around June where you can catch sun on the nose of the units at this spot.

  3. That’s an awesome scene Seth.

  4. It was a bit of luck having a train waiting while the 8800 turned. Then there is also that calm, clear morning air. :-)
    Thanks Mark.
