Looking at some of my earlier slides, I came across this one. Here is the Muskeg Mixed returning home very late to Edmonton. It's usual return is in the middle of the night, this photo shows it at 9:30 passing through Redwater. The luck of having it late, as you can see, was being able to photograph the great lineup of unit's (9175, 9164 & 9176). Film used was Ektachrome 64.

  1. My theory on how this was built. Although I did not see this train heading to Waterways I bet that the 9175 (butt to butt with the 9176) was leading on the way there. A common practice that I observed over the years is, if 3 or more units make up the consist, they would at Waterways cut off the lead unit (the 9175 in this case) and wye it. Then tack it on at the other end which now produces this return home lineup.

  2. Not too often you’d see F units on any road run elephant.
