Initially saw this train in Redwater. As the covered hoppers were all of one type, I figured they are headed for storage on the old Lac La Biche Sub. At Egremont I watched as they shoved 90 hoppers into the old Sub. The headend brakeman is chatting with the hoghead as they wait for the tailend brakeman to walk back. Next will be pick up the caboose and head cabhop to Fort McMurray for a load of sulphur. On a sombre note the 5586, which is heading up the power. In just a little over 4 months from this date, it will be in the lead again but involved in the head on collision near Hinton. A tragic day in rail history. Time of photo 8:30.
