Oh my, oh my, what a stunning image! You have to love Fs, the crewman on the ladder is perfect, and it seems funny to say it, but somehow the CN truck just makes the composition complete. The separation between the red and black is amazing - did you use a red filter? Thanks for sharing this.

I like this one, Bob. I don't think the "Skeena" name was formally used at this time.

I rode it in 1972, and it was just "Trains 9 and 10."

Likewise, it's a wonderful image, the van loading or receiving, the crewman at just the right point on his climb into or out of the loco. Great.

What a great image. I even like the loader sticking out on the flat car over in the yard. Back when ditch lights were an add-on accessory. Sometimes black and white just creates the mood. Thank you !

Great photo, Bob. Thanks for keeping this all these years. It's also further proof that not all Canadians wear Sorrels all year 'round.

Being 1973, are the cars in the two-color (colour) grey scheme while the F-unit is in the newer red nose with black car body and the big white stripes?
