Rio Tinto's Roberval & Saquenay Railway operated its 3rd Annual Holiday Train from Arvida to Grande-Bay, Quebec and return on December 7. The train is occupied by families of the Rio Tinto operations, however entertains families along the route with costumed characters representing several kid-favorites, including Paw Patrols Marshall, Disney's Frozen - Elsa, as well as Minnie and Mickey Mouse. Led by Roberval & Sagueanay GP38-2 #62 in full light decorations, a borrowed VIA Rail stainless steel set and F40 6443, are ahead of a Christmas Tree Juke Box car that plays festive music along the way. The train is seen crossing the Rivière à Mars at Grande-Baie late in the afternoon on December 7.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
