A train of 35 sulphur hoppers, loaded and headed for Edmonton. 5 units is a lot of power for 35 loads, the line up is the 9164, 9194, 9159, 4332 and 9160. They are stopped at the moment, waiting for 836 (3 GMD-1's headed east) to clear at Kerensky. They will also meet 584 (2 GP38's headed east) in Redwater, a lot of train action this morning, YAY! Glad I got this sunny shot as they waited, as you can see there was a lot of cloud in the sky. Photo taken just south of Egremont, time 11:30.

  1. Wow! Thanks for the very positive comment on my posted photo’s. It’s great having someone checking them out who knows the Redwater area. :-)

  2. Beautiful pictures, highlight of my day!!

  3. Thanks Joseph. :-)
    Our last names remind me of my time on CN. Several times I worked with a foreman with the same last name as yours. I also worked a number of shifts with a hoghead whose last name was Lord. We always laughed because we never got called together as a crew. The Lord, the Bishop and Priest. We all thought it would have been rather hilarious. :-)

  4. As always, awesome, Lance

  5. Thanks a bunch Arnold and Steve. :-)
    Zapping dust off of scans has to be one of the most tedious tasks. The great verbal support keeps me energized and going. I so appreciate all the comments.

  6. Goodness…… what a lashup.

  7. Good Grief !!!! :o )

  8. Thanks so very much, Marcus and Todd, those are terrific comments. :-)
    To add a little more to the caption, power like this as it worked up the hill into Redwater was pure bliss to listen to. I truly do miss listening to that 1st generation EMD sound.

  9. Fabulous! Simply put. Absolutely fabulous photo. Great lash up too.

  10. Another amazing consist
    Great shot again!
