An extended long-weekend family trip to Calgary didn’t leave any time to get trackside there, but coming west we purposely made hotel reservations to allow a little time on one day.
It started at the Railway Street crossing in Canmore, Alberta. This is Mile 67.15 of Canadian Pacific’s Laggan Subdivision of the CP Prairie Division. From the look of the Mountains, they could probably have had it in the Mountain Sub.
Train#100 has slowed to 25 mph for a slow-order just west of my location and then slow gains speed after the tail-end has cleared. It’s pretty much downhill all the way to Calgary from here.
