Ram River, Alberta to Vancouver Thornton Yard, BC sulphur train S 71351 06 rolls through Looma, Alberta on the Camrose Sub.  Due to a shortage of power, the SD40-2Ws have been sporadically seeing more mainline time and today 713 has CN 2951, CN 5321 and CN 5268.  The SD's were supposed to lead the train back, however, due to the 5268 not having dynamic brakes, the power had to be ran from the mine at Ram River back to Red Deer to wye, before being able to bring the train down the mountain grade from Ram River, which is nestled in the foothills of Alberta.
