  1. Also notice the ex-GTP bridge in the background that allowed their line to reach downtown Calgary (where “Fort Calgary” site is now. CN still uses it to reach their interchange with CP and some sort of Tank car facility .

  2. If I recall my very young years spent in Calgary, the switch in the foreground leads to what was then a bustling refinery…..but that was long gone by the late sixties when I
    returned to Alberta.

  3. Looks like bridge girder would obscure a normal hight stand

  4. That high level switch stand is interesting.
