Long story to this one of a kind photo. I did not like to bring my regular camera with me when shopping. I found a nice second hand German made 110 camera that would easily fit in a cubby hole of the car dashboard. Which lead to this one photo I have of a freight passing through downtown Fort Saskatchewan. Right in front of the Fort Mall :-). It has just finished honking for the first 4 crossings and is getting ready for the 5th. No doubt, residents gave a huge sigh of relief when the line was moved out of town in 1987. The 4302 is followed by the 9177 and 9176 as they slowly head east on the way to Vermilion. I'm happy that little strip of film sat nice in the film holder for the scanner. Wow, just drove down here on Google, this whole area has changed considerably. Pretty sure this is 1985 or possibly summer of 86.

  1. Hard to believe there was a railroad here.

  2. The only evidence remaining is the station and a short piece of track with a caboose on it, located a few blocks west of this photo.
    The way they are promoting LRT’s in Edmonton, they are going to wish they never tore down the bridge over the river. LRT from downtown Fort to downtown Edmonton, sounds nice. :-)

  3. While I don’t live there I do work in the area . I do grab lunch at the co-op on occasion and eat it in park near the station and caboose. Can’t think of a better view !
