Outram SK 1976
Author: eminence_grise

Back in 1976, I climbed up onto a forty foot boxcar at Outram SK to photograph a westbound freight heading toward Tribune from Estevan SK and the end of track.

Today, Outram still has an elevator and is on a shortline, the Long Creek Railroad

I like the two photos Phil.  One of only 21 GP38AC's in Canada and the 2nd photo is a classic prairie railroading scene..

Track and elevator still there on Google Map. Looks like it's been a while since used though.

Nice capture of pre-covered hopper railroading. We still provided a few grain boxcars when I worked on the MoPac in Kansas in 1979. Those were short-lived, however, as the covered hopper had just about eliminated them. Next to go were the small elevators such as this one. And, of course, the caboose.

Thanks for sharing these.

What a classic Canadian Praire scene! Love the CP van tagging along. Would you or could you climb equipment today to capture these iconic shots? To many things have changed!

Yeah, you could get on top of a covered hopper and probably get yourself in the back of a police car too.
