Canadian Pacific used to reach Prince Albert via the Prince Albert sub. northward from Lanigan, with a short stretch on CN at Humboldt, then a longer run on CN from Northway to a switchback into CP’s own yard in Prince Albert.  Daily wayfreight service was provided from Lanigan, with timetable schedules on the CN.  Here is the southbound half, No. 86, at the CP depot (out of sight to the left) with its typical single GP9, 8531, on Monday 1976-09-27, with the caboose snug up to end of track at 1 Ave. E halfway between 13 St. E and 14 St. E.  The building in the background stands to this day as the Cumberland Crossing Inn, but everything else in the photo is history.

  1. Interesting. Same unit I shot in the turntable pit down in The Hat. (#25661) Wishing I had had a better camera back then.

  2. Nice. Neat scene with the Geep and caboose.

  3. Really nice shot Ken…

  4. I lived in Prince Albert in the mid 1980s, always thought CP just ran their RS23s up there. Neat to see something else. Thank you for sharing
