Remarks & Notes 
Canada on ice! Arguably the best looking covered grain hoppers ever made, this series of CNWX and CPWX hoppers proudly proclaimed their nation. Many are still in service today, but to me, this shot says it all about winter in the Fraser Canyon as an eastbound empty grain train braves a blizzard out of Boston Bar, heading for Kamloops and more of the Canadian winter.
