On Monday 1974-06-17, ex CP Royal Hudson 2860 departed the CP Vancouver depot for a new career, travelling east to Coquitlam (formerly Westminster Junction, now Westwood) then south to Sapperton, then west on BN to Willingdon Junction, then north on CN through the Thornton Tunnel and over the Second Narrows railway bridge to Lynn Creek and onward to North Vancouver on British Columbia Railway.  A combination of slow speed lifting from Vancouver and good timing on my part captured an ideal rods-down view with CP’s Granville Square office tower prominent in the background.
