I did not put a date in my notes for this photo, the other photos on the roll will place the time safely as the middle of July. The 4236 has taken the siding at Gibbons, waiting for an eastbound. Besides the usual empty tanks from the airforce base and loads of grain, they have some work train cars on the headend. As I was taking my pictures, the hoghead and brakeman came out for a nice chat. If I was on the ball, I should have had them pose in front of their engine. In a short while they were on the way to Edmonton, the trailing unit is the 4330. Fortunately, both these units were rebuilt. The 4236 to the 7066 and the 4330 to the 7256. I could not find any recent photos of the 7066, maybe it is retired or sold. Michael Berry does have some recent photos of the 7256 in Montreal from 2016.
