Remarks & Notes 
Late running train 911, after being stuck with local work at Trout Lake and heading for a meet with a tardy eastbound extra at Gilchrist makes short work of the snow and cold as it rips through Garnet. Soo 6609,759 are the power, followed by a few Mead loads/chip loads along with the normal string of COFC back in the snow dust. The thing I remember the most about this job was sitting in the cab warming up at Gilchrist as the engineer filled me in on his consist. Said Art LaGault "this is a perfect pair, 6609 likes to work and 759 likes to let it".

Photos by some of the best railroad still photographers in North America. These photographers must have a significant impact on the art form and have been shooting (or shot in the past) for at least 10 years.
