On the CP Lacombe sub. in central Alberta, a Coronation Turn with a pair of GP38-2s, 3056+3130, is eastward at 1117 MDT on Sunday 1991-10-06 with twelve empty grain hoppers through the village of Halkirk at mileage 33.7.  Nowadays the rails only reach 15 miles to the west at Botha.

Yes, this is the same train as posted last week, that one originally marked as at Halkirk but with the wrong photo, and actually at Stettler, as first noted by SD70Dude.  Thanks to Steve Host for straightening that entry out for me.
