Miserable Alberta Monday's-A grey day at Okotoks
Author: arwye

A few rare subjects in this photo taken at Okotoks on January 13, 1974. First of all, the substantial brick station instead of a standard wood CPR design, followed by one of their few GP38's, #3012 with a rare western appearance for RS10-8566. Both locomotives on 2nd train 992 with its grain block. Richard Yaremko

Richard,

Are you sure that the trailing unit is not an RS10? Looks like she's painted long hood forward.......

Perfect shot, old and new, dusting of snow, on the station roof, boxcar on the siding, elevator, and on the list goes.

Terrific shot! Back in the day before Okotoks became one of the fastest growing communities in Canada!
