Boats are seen resting along one of the many docks lining Portage Bay on gorgeous Lake of the Woods in downtown Keewatin. The peace and serenity of the scene is broken by the reverberation of westbound train 119-16, skirting the man made shoreline. Having just received their results of their outbound pull by inspection at the crew change point in Kenora, the crew is getting the train up to track speed. Along their journey they will see a pair of back to back eastbound hotshots (100-16 and 118-16) somewhere in the middle of the Keewatin Sub before proceeding onto Winnipeg to essentially set off half their train and lift just as much traffic west for Edmonton.
