Dropping grain cars

Dropping grain cars
Hanging out at Walker yards and I decided to bring out the scanner. Heard train 591 pulling cars out of Dunvegan and then they came down the bypass in reverse. I got out the trackside guide and figured out that train 591 services the Westlock subdivision, so we jumped in the truck and headed out to Morinville and waited, and waited, and waited..... Nothing showed up so we decided to head back towards the city to see what was up and we found it just going under highway 2, so it was a race back to this crossing to get this shot. We just about didn't make it!

Trains can be so sneaky ;-) Great shot!

It's nice to see a GP40-2, I haven't seen one of those in a very long time.
