At milepost 109 of the Grande Prairie sub. of the Northern Alberta Railways, highway 43 was crossed, and on the north (timetable west) side there was a spur frequently occupied by bridge and building gang outfit cars for attending to several significant timber trestles over Albright Creek just a bit farther west.  Here is timetable train number 52 with GP9 210 from Dawson Creek, BC, vigorously heading home to Grande Prairie, AB, on Tursday 1977-09-20, just 3.9 km directly east of the BC-Alberta border.  That section of now-CN track is now out of service, and Dawson Creek is served by CN’s former BC Railway lines from the west.
