Foreign power on a branch line. UP 5501 is making the 30 mile trip to Pecten, Alberta with liquid gas tank cars in tow. This was my first time following a train down this line. After a rather dull day railfanning on the Crowsnest Sub, I heard the RTC give clearance for this train to Pecten. I arrived at Brocket just as it was leaving the mainline. This was much more exciting than waiting hours with nothing in Crownest Pass.
