While broadside telephoto shots from 400 metres away across the lake were okay, they inspired my purchase of a small inflatable boat to capture closer views of the mileage 79.9 trestle bridge on the east side of Green Lake north of Wellington on Vancouver Island.  One result from Wednesday 1981-03-18 was train No. 71 from Wellcox yard in Nanaimo heading to Port Alberni behind GP9s 8646 and 8657 caught at 1330 PST.
