This is a second try to post this picture properly.  In the Selkirks a loaded and empty coal train meet.  As usual the MLW's are smoking it up. Note the crewmen walking towards the highway.  They probably ran out of time and are being relieved.

  1. Imagine how that would have sounded on the climb to Stoney Creek Bridge

  2. Cool shot. Almost steam.

  3. This is back in the time when CP train watching was really great. They would have large numbers of diesels hauling trains like this through the front and main ranges of the mountains.
