Fall Season on CN's Edson Sub
Author: tsokolan

The fall colours in the Edmonton Alberta area hit peak during the end of September and into the first week of October this year.. Usually CN's Edson Subdivision west of Edmonton is a good area to shoot trains in fall coulours, so I spent a few days trying to capture a few images.

1. U725, the regular unit rock train from Cadomin to Edmonton, heads west back to the mine at Mile 29 of the Edson Sub. A single ex. CNW C40-8 is sufficent power to move the short string of empties. September 29 2020

2. Company service train O499, with a cut of loaded grain hoppers on the head end, passes eastbound freight A416 at Mile 29 of the Edson Sub. September 29 2020

3. X310 crosses the Pembina River at Entwistle Alberta with a C40-8M and a Dash 9 on the point. September 23 2020

The drone perspectives are just fabulous; the first shot of Magnolia and the Wabamun shots are personal favourites.
