CN 840 is seen passing the 1/38th scale Eiffel Tower replica in Montmartre Saskatchewan, or "Paris of the Prairies" as the town slogan describes itself.  Traffic levels on the Glenavon sub are quite low and there are no regular assignments on this line so this set of grain loads bound for Thunder Bay was a nice treat. Also worth noting are the flags at half mast for the Queen's passing one day prior.
