Roster shot of CMQ SD40-2F 9021 (ex CP) returning to former home rails on the CP Aldersyde Sub.
The Rocky Mountains can be seen in the distance as ex. CP SD40-2F 9021 returns to its former home rails on the Aldersyde Sub leading a northbound ballast train towards Calgary.
CMQ SD40-2F 9021 and CP SD40-2 5743 lead a heavy ballast train (with 25 grain loads tacked onto the tailend for good measure) north on the Aldersyde Sub through Nobleford.

Eastbound doublestacks, detouring via Lethbridge and the BNSF through Montana due to washouts near Medicine Hat, approach Lethbridge yard through the rolling grain fields of southern Alberta
Lots of tradition present here, including jointed rail
