Did I hear a request for Lac La Biche? Here is a weeks worth and it will help tie some of my photos together. To start, quite awhile ago I posted an odd ball consist of the 9160, 9190 and 1081. This was a work extra heading out on Thursday, May 23rd at 9:30. Next, on Sunday the 26th, a unit train of 33 empties heads out with the 4602, 5578 and 5606. The next day Monday the 27th, another unit train heads out with the 5590, 9194, 9107 and 9159 as a cabhop at 8:30 (posted this just a few weeks ago). Later on Monday at 17:30, it is the return of the 5606, 5578, 9190 and 1081 with 34 sulphur loads (another odd consist). On Tuesday at 16:00 the 5590, 9194, 9107,and 9159 return with 50 loads. At 11:00 on Wednesday the 29th will be the photo I just posted of the 9159, 9194 and 9164 heading out with a bunch of empties. Later on Wednesday at 21:00, the Muskeg Mixed heads out with the 4332 and 4214. Which brings us to this photo, Friday the 31st at 11:30, with the 9164, 9194, 9159, 4332 and 9160 (way at the back). It is just sitting clear of the north connecting track switch at Egremont. Waiting for 836 to pass through Kerensky. They have 35 loads and caboose 79764. Later on Friday at 22:00, it is the return of the Muskeg Mixed with a single 4214. The only unit remaining up north was the 4602, from the 26th, and it snuck by at some point without my seeing it.

    A great week on the Lac La Biche Sub. :-)

  2. I see another one peeking out at right….!!

  3. Yes, that is the 9160. It spent quite a while up north. I’m going to bet that when the 4602 arrived, the work train crew asked for it and got rid of the 9160. Those F’s are not a lot of fun to switch with and do work train business. It was a rather free mixing of units between all the different crews though.
    I will thank bcr_766 for his request on Lac La Biche trains, it was fun rounding all this up. :-)

  4. You had it good there…

    Along with the Hamilton Hagersville fans of the mid 80s.

    F units seemed to only stay in certain areas

    You are right about crews hating em…
