836 is passing through Redwater on the way to the Cold Lake airforce base. One of my favourite Redwater photos as there were a few hoppers spotted at the elevators (actually the 3 near ones are already loaded and waiting to be lifted). The units are the 1078, 1069 and 1075. The 1078 was a rare visitor on the Coronado Sub. and nice to have it leading for this picture. Time of this picture, 11:00.

  1. I hear ya BCR. Another place my 3 sons and myself would always checkout was Marshall Wells hardware. A real remnant from the old days in Redwater. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane. :-)

  2. Man, brings back memories!!! As a child of the 80′s we would go to Redwater for swimming lessons (outdoor pool), then after we would stop off at “Satellite Confec” for a treat. Keep em coming!! It would be impossible to beat Extra’s photo’s but I’d love to see the same era of photo’s from Carbondale to Kerensky on the old NAR line through Bon Accord.

  3. I was thinking just that Arnold but chickened out. My grin was just as big though when I typed the names in. :-)

  4. If it would have sounded more poetic, you could have called me “Mary”. >big grin<

  5. Thanks Peter, Paul & Arnold. :-)
    I’m not a serious model railroader, never had a layout. Just ran them on the floor with the kids. But when Rapido came out with their HO GMD-1, my order went in right away for an NAR engine. Never been ran, just gets looked at. :-D

  6. Another wonderful image!

  7. I just love this. I’ve probably looked at it 15 times already.

  8. Nice catch. Straight stacks, spark arrestors, short hood bells! Lots of detail variances for modelers.

  9. Thanks for all the super comments guys. They really make my day. :-)
    To Arnold, you know how they say Canada is like 10 or more years behind the US. Redwater, when I moved there in 1981, was still in the early 70′s. A great place to raise a family of 3 boys.
    To Todd, yes, across from the nearest elevator were speeder shacks, a tool shed etc. Not really a station but when the mixed train stopped in town, people would detrain at the big wooden platform. I just found a real good picture of it a couple of days ago. I will ready it and post.

  10. Awesome. Did Redwater ever have a station? Looks like it would have stood on the other side of the train….out of view.

  11. My gawd. How quaint !!!! Like it is out of an old National Geographic!!

  12. Beautiful photo, a true Canadian classic!

  13. Beyond cool
