I don't know what it is like at this spot since the Hwy 6 bridge got widened, but years ago a favourite spot was sitting on a ledge under the bridge; scanner in hand, and keeping out of the hot sun. That was the case when this westbound approached. Being mid-July I would imagine even the shade and the breeze that blew thru was barely enough to keep me cool........but I am ready when along comes CP 4731 and 4744 with a 58 car train. I like the stripes on the leader, but I kinda wish the 4744 was leading. Sure beats today's GEs anyway.
