A cab hop headed due north here, destination will be Waterways to pickup 50 loads of sulphur and return to Edmonton. The 5533 in the black noodle paint was a rare visitor, this being my only time taking photos of it. To connect to my last post of the 1082 in 1985 on the abandoned Lac La Biche Sub. Behind the 5579, you can see ammonia tanks now stored on the old abandoned track. In 1985 they stored cars here twice, springtime with flats (the 1082) and covered hoppers in the fall, which returned from storage in October back to Edmonton (an older previous post of mine with the 1069). The ammonia tanks will return in the fall of 86 and I believe they never stored cars here again. I will not be much longer until the old 60lb rail was removed. My photo of the 1082 is approx. 2km west of this spot, down the track with the tanks on it. I added GPS as you can still see where the old tracks ran in the aerial photos. Time of this photo, 8:30 on the north end of the connecting track, shot with Kodak 100ASA film.

  1. Nice caboose hop photo. That’s neat that there was still some units in the black noodle paint in 1986.
