  1. Love those N.O.D. shots near and west of Capreol! :-)
    27 years later on my most recent trip to Churchill, MB, on September 26, 2023, VIA 6451 was leading VIA 693 out of Winnipeg, MB.

  2. Thanks Paul. As this unit approaches 35 years old, I have to wonder how many miles are on it. They sure get around the country.

  3. Signal was still there circa 2014.

  4. Signal 2756 was removed when Capreol Yard YTC (Yard Traffic Control) was removed, I’m guessing 2016/2017. At that time CTC was reinstated on the main track through Capreol Yard. The signals governing southward movements to the Bala Sub. at Capreol South are located close to where the original 1960′s CTC signals were as seen in this photo posted by First954.

    The new southward signal can be seen in the distance by the tailend of VIA #1 in this photo posted by Kenneth G. Pieroway.
