Remarks & Notes 
A light snowstorm near sunset leaves fresh snow to be kicked up by eastbound empty potash train #672, led by still new GEVo 8946. In the darkest depths of the Canadian winter, a golden glow lingers in the sky through much of the afternoon. This is one of the fastest stretches of track through the mountains, with a 50MPH speed limit - Back in the days when speed limits only applied to curves, passenger trains would use the tangents in the area to make up time, reaching speeds as high as 90MPH!
