Big line up on this train, or, so it seems. The work train has caught a ride out to Redwater. Starting with the 4607, there is also the 9100, 4330, 4338, and 4350. The 4338 and 4350 are the units for the work train and you can see their large train of ballast cars behind. It was quite the operation as these 2 trains separated themselves in Redwater, as the all the MOW units that were just here working, see bare track and ties in front of 4607, held the main line in town. Leaving just the passing and elevator tracks to do switching. At this moment, the running crew is waiting for all the MOW of way units to get into clear. Eventually the 4607, 9100 4330 and cab 79420 will depart with a large string of empty sulphur hoppers for northern Alberta. During these early spring days in 1988, almost every train out of Edmonton brought ballast cars with them. What had started as a small trickle a couple of years ago, was coming to a grand close, the track never looked better by end of summer.
