Eyewitness to a VIA overtake
Author: xcnsnake

Sometimes - by hook or by crook - VIA scoops priority E/B traffic;) as seen here recently in Hinton, Alberta.

Is that one of the missing diners, deadheading behind the power?

They could be deadheading a diner and coach car etc. It's just that the baggage car hasn't "cleared" the front end of the freight locomotive yet. It's common for equipment to be shuttled back and forth in the winter time between Toronto-Winnipeg-Edmonton-Jasper-Vancouver.

At least you weren't run around by the train called 5 minutes behind you:)
